The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) provides a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. For procurement and supply chain professionals, complying with PCI DSS is critical to protecting payment card data, preventing data breaches, and maintaining customer trust. It supports the implementation of robust security measures and helps organizations manage cybersecurity risks associated with payment processing.
