Your Ability to Process Credit Cards May Be at Risk!

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Wed, May 26, 2010

As you may be aware, the five major credit card networks established the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) as a set of requirements for merchants to use when configuring their IT and payment-processing environments. If you store, process, or transmit cardholder data, your company may be subject to these requirements.

Merchants must comply by July 1, 2010, or risk losing the ability to process credit cards. For complete details on these requirements, visit the official PCI Security Standard Web site at: http://pcisecuritystandards.org.
