Credit and debit cards are the most widely used form of payment now a days. Everything has become digital and more convenient for the user to make a transaction. With the convenience there is also risks.
As a business the risk of compromised data has also become widely known. It is not uncommon these days to hear of a business getting hacked and your client’s data has been compromised. Or even your business data was compromised. The amount of time and money needed to remedy these issues can be astronomical. In some cases your business will be down until all things have been resolved.
As you continue to allow your business to accept credit and debit card transactions make sure you have the right security policies in place. The security policies set in place will not only protect your clients but it will protect you. The security policy you need to implement is PCI Compliance.
PCI Compliance is meant for all companies that process, store, or transmit credit or debit card information to maintain a secure environment. The security policies within PCI Compliance needs to be tested and reviewed often. In some cases you’ll need to report your proactive efforts to your insurance company and banks to testify you meet or exceed the rules and regulations that are required to stay compliant.
