Credit cards have become the payment method of choice for consumers, initiating new opportunities for fraud and identity theft. Fragmentation of the payment process across multiple entities—merchant, service provider, and credit processing entity—creates many entry points for criminals to access and misuse customer information. As a result, the Payment Card Industry (PCI) program has placed significant pressure on businesses to establish solid enterprise-level security programs.
PCI compliance is a complex, ever-evolving issue affecting millions of businesses—acquiring banks, independent sales organizations (ISOs), processors, hosts, shopping carts, eCommerce and retail merchants, and other merchant service providers. Any business that accepts, stores, manages, processes, or transmits payment card information is subject to intense scrutiny.
