Butterfield Merchant PCI
Did you know that customers’ card transaction records are among information that data attackers target the most? To ensure that card transactions occur in a safe, secure environment all merchants are required to comply with the industry standard, called PCI DSS.
What is PCI DSS?
Comprising the five major card networks, the PCI Security Standards Council created PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) that apply to every business that stores, processes or transmits any cardholder data. Nobody is exempt. If you don't take steps to protect cardholder data, it could result in your business being fined for non-compliance or worse, your customer’s cardholder data being compromised. All merchants are required to comply with PCI DSS to protect themselves and their customers against a breach of cardholder information.
