Does your company need to be PCI DSS compliant?
PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. It is a set of security standards developed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to ensure the protection of cardholder data during payment card transactions. PCI DSS compliance refers to the adherence to these standards by businesses that handle payment card data, such as merchants, service providers, and financial institutions.
