Indeed it does. PCI can be viewed as a way to improve operational efficiencies. For instance, by automating the process of applying patches or configuration changes to your store systems, you not only minimize the system downtime but you also improve efficiency—because now your IT employees won’t have to make trips to individual stores to do these updates manually. That’s just one example of an automated process. Ultimately, implementing the requirements of PCI can help you proactively become more efficient, which helps you go up the revenue curve and down the cost curve.
