What is PCI Compliance?
PCI Compliance is a set of requirements that ensures your company securely handles any and all credit card information that is processed, stored, or transmitted through your business. To many small businesses, PCI Security Standards may seem trivial and difficult to adhere to. PCI Compliance is extremely important to any sized business, and can have dire consequences if not adhered to. Without compliance, your customer’s information is at risk, and so is your business.
Why should your business be PCI Compliant?
It only takes one incident to severely damage your business’ reputation. That could mean loss of sales, loss of your relationships with customers and other businesses, lawsuits, insurance claims, and even government fines. PCI Compliance ensures that you’re keeping your customer’s personal information safe and secure. Adhering to these regulations will also allow your business to:
- Build your customer’s trust. Confident, trusting customers are more likely to become repeat customers and will refer your business.
- Develop a good reputation with business partners and other brands, which are a necessary part of growing and establishing a business.
- Be prepared to comply with other regulations, such as HIPPA and SOX.
- Help to fight credit card fraud and data compromise.
