About the PCI User Group

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (or PCI DSS for short) is a set of complex regulations which all businesses taking credit card payments must go through. Although the exact requirements for each merchant to achieve PCI DSS compliance are dependent on the number of transactions taken annually, the requirements broadly fall into two parts: scanning and auditing.

The PCI User Group was formed back in 2005 for merchants and retailers to come together and talk about the issues surrounding PCI DSS. The aim is for merchants to be able to share experiences with fellow professionals, and to learn from the different businesses and sectors that attend the meeting.

Guest speakers are regularly in attendance, and include acquiring banks as well as representatives from Visa and MasterCard. This gives merchants the opportunity to hear the latest developments in PCI and to ask questions regarding their specific situations.

The PCI DSS User Group is chaired by ProCheckUp, and meets every 6-8 weeks. It is held in central London. If you would like to join the group, please use this link to register your interest and to be notified of future meeting dates.

PCI User Group has formed a media partnership with Search Security. The user group will remain completely confidential for merchants, however the partnership will allow key information regarding the standard to be reported to the a wider audience. See the In the News Section for more information.
