Cardholder Data

Cardholder data (CD) consists of all personally identifiable information (PII), such as the cardholder’s name, card number, expiration date, and CVV security code of the individual with a credit or debit card. This is sensitive card information subject to security regulations like PCI DSS. Banks, payment merchants, and other entities that store and process this data must have adequate security measures to protect the cardholder’s data from security threats.
