PCI

Whether you are a small or large business, protecting PCI data is critical.

81% of businesses surveyed in both the U.S. and Europe store payment card numbers (according to PCI Security Standards Council). Although we continue to hear about massive credit card related data breaches, the latest Compliance Report conducted by Verizon indicates that none of the companies it had investigated in the past ten years had been fully PCI DSS compliant at the time they were breached. Employee training is a critical component to ensuring both compliance and security.
