Every business that handles payment cardholder information, storing, processing, or transmitting it, is obligated to safeguard this data and show compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). PCI compliance frequently makes headlines, usually in cases where a business or third-party service provider fails to comply, leading to data breaches involving millions of compromised credit and debit cards. Failing to attain and sustain PCI compliance may result in significant penalties, damage to brand reputation, and the potential loss of the ability to accept credit cards as a form of payment.
