GDPR is an important regulation that aims to protect personal data and privacy of individuals within the European Union (EU), while PCI compliance ensures that the credit card data provided or shared by cardholders is safe. All businesses that store, process or transmit credit card data electronically are required to follow the PCI compliance guidelines.
