Businesses that accept credit cards for payment are required to operate their business following the security guidelines outlined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI-SSC). These guidelines are known as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS). We’re here to help you with the process of becoming compliant, so we created a program called PCI Smart. Data breaches are not limited to the big box retailers and are a reality for merchants of all sizes and all types of transactions. As a result, the card brands (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and others) also require that all merchants comply with the Payment Card Industry standards.
PCI Smart helps you validate that you’re being PCI Compliant which helps eliminate expensive data breaches. When you do your part to help secure your customer’s data, you’re letting them know that their safety is important to you. And, who doesn’t love a company that looks out for it’s customers?
