We get it, PCI Compliance is a recurring topic that feels like a thorn in everyone’s side. It comes up again and again during conversations and integrations and is an important discussion to have. There are many PCI compliance standards that you may have heard of including PCI DSS, PCI PTS and so on. These standards were designed to keep payment solutions in check and make sure the sensitive card data remains safe. The PCI DSS, for example, refers to the Data Security Standard released by the PCI Council that are put in place to ensure that all businesses that accept, process, store and/ or transmit cardholder data (i.e., credit card information), do it in the safest way possible. By following these regulations, merchants can better protect their payment infrastructures from data breaches.
