PCI Compliancy – Point of Sale (PA-DSS)
PCI is the Payment Card Industry. It was established to protect the credit card information of consumers. PCI applies to ALL merchants and the standards are enforced everywhere, regardless of the number of transactions or size of the business. If you accept credit or debit card payments, the PCI requirements apply to you.
Protect Your Business
Because restaurant industries are at high risk for credit card fraud, PCI compliancy is a subject that must be taken seriously. Many restaurant operators are uninformed, confused, and too frustrated by the technical requirements to protect their businesses both efficiently and effectively. Nevertheless, credit card fraud is happening every single day; it is imperative that you defend your customers and your business against it.
HungerRush Can Help
It is our goal to educate all of our clients about PCI compliancy, and we strive to provide all of the knowledge necessary to protect your customers’ cardholder data – and to shield your business from liability. Compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) helps to alleviate vulnerabilities. Failure to comply may result in a security breach, and the consequences of this are severe.
HungerRush is dedicated to helping our customers quickly and easily become PCI compliant so that security breaches can be avoided. A security breach can result in fines ranging from $5,000 to $500,000, brand reputation as an unsafe place to use a credit card, and potentially losing the ability to accept credit cards altogether.
PCI Compliancy – Online Ordering (PCI-DSS)
If you are currently using an online ordering platform for your business, it is your responsibility to confirm that the online ordering company you use is PCI-DSS compliant. Your online ordering company is your service provider. You are your service provider’s customer and you are a merchant that accepts credit cards.
Service providers perform services that impact the PCI-DSS compliance of their customers. The PCI Security Standards Committee defines a service organization as, “any company that stores, processes, or transmits cardholder data on behalf of another entity.” Just like you, the merchant, online ordering service providers are required to comply with the 12 requirements of the PCI Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) based on their level.
The quickest way to find out if your online ordering company has been approved by Visa and/or Mastercard as a PCI-DSS certified service provider is to check their websites.
