"Protect Your Customers' Credit Card Data"
Tue May-06-08 05:31 AM by Boomer57


The growing problems of credit card fraud and online security breaches make it more important than ever for Internet merchants to use a shopping cart system that is PCI Compliant.

The PCI Security Standards Council announced recently that all merchants and service providers that store, process, and transmit payment card data are required by the payment brands to comply with the PCI (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard. In addition to protecting sensitive data from hackers, PCI compliance also helps online merchants win the trust of their wary site visitors.

Bottom line: Make sure that your web hosting company and the eCommerce software you use are PCI compliant and CISP certified. Providers who have successfully completed a "Cardholder Information Security Program" review are the best equipped to help you protect your customers' valuable credit card data and help block it from getting into the 'wrong hands'.
