Credit card jargon

PAN – the card number

BIN – the first 6 digits of the card number, which identifies the issuer of the card  

CVV –  It is on the back of your card. Normally it has 3 digits.  Providing your CVV number to an online merchant proves that you actually have the physical credit or debit card – and helps to keep you safe while reducing fraud. 

CDE – A computer system or networked group of IT systems that processes, stores
and/or transmits cardholder data or sensitive payment authentication
data.  It is short for Cardholder Data Environment
