The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has been in place since 2004, with PCI DSS 4.0 released in 2022 and going into full force March 2025. The overarching goal is simple, to protect cardholder data. In accordance with PCI DSS Requirement 4.2, the use of end-user messaging technologies like email for capturing, transmitting, or storing credit card information is strictly prohibited.
