The card security code (CSC) is a 3 or 4 digit number that is not part of the credit card number.
The number appears only on the card itself (not on receipts or statements), so it provides some assurance that the physical card is in your possession. This helps us reduce fraud.
The CSC is the last 3 digits of the account number panel.
