MasterCard Site Data Protection


Compliance Considerations

The MasterCard Site Data Protection Programme is designed to help MasterCard member banks, merchant partners and service providers protect MasterCard payment data and ensure the integrity of the MasterCard payment system. In addition to these critical benefits, MasterCard Site Data Protection can also reinforce cardholder confidence and reduce the potential threat to the overall payment structure.

If a merchant does not meet the applicable MasterCard Site Data Protection requirements, MasterCard may levy a non-compliance assessment on the responsible MasterCard member.

MasterCard Site Data Protection is intended to protect all participants in MasterCard-branded activities from risk associated with theft and misuse of account data.
