Security on the internet has become more important than ever. So we want to take the time to proudly tell you about our PCI/CISP Certification and what that means for you.
What is PCI/CISP?
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) is a joint creation of Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. In response to the growing frequency and severity of credit card and identity theft, this organization created the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), with the overall goal of protecting credit card data wherever it may reside. The Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) was initiated and mandated by Visa in June 2001 by Visa. In 2004, these requirements were incorporated into the PCI DSS to establish industry wide standards for card security. These standards must be followed by both merchants and providers.
Why it's important.
With identity theft on the rise, meeting and exceeding the PCI standards is critical for anyone doing business on line including the merchant and the customer. For the merchant, penalties can include $500,00 in fines (per incident), complete loss of ability to process credit card transactions and lawsuits, not to mention major public relations crises. For customers though, in the face of credit card and/or identity theft, they face dozens of calls to be made and forms to be filled out and their credit can be ruined. What it means for you.
