I've been out of the country for a few months and I've just come back and started a new role. I have concerns about the credit card check out on my new site as it simply requires a card number and expiry data to be entered (for non Maestro/Solo).
Is anyone aware of any minimum stipulations/best practise guidelines that we should be adhering to? I'm also aware that Mastercard/Visa's online security has become more high profile whilst I've been away.

You should be aware of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI CSS. https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/
In addition we were allegedly obliged to implement Verified by Visa and Mastercard securecode this year (search the Visa site) but this was unrealistic and many sites don't have it yet. My colleagues in the States tell me that VBV has pretty much died over there.
You should obviously be asking for the CSC (card security code) and doing an AVS (address verification service) check. Your payment gateway company can advise.

Obviously I would recommend our recently published Online Retail: Checkout Special which goes into a LOT of detail about how to do the best possible checkout process online.

Address verification may not be possible with non-UK addresses. But you probably need to have a different procedure for accepting orders paid/delivered to non-domestic addresses. This will depend upon what you are selling.
Speak to your bank as well as the payment gateway providers. You may find different charges and risks apply.
