Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) define industry best practices for handling and protecting credit card details. It details best practices for device developers and also provides merchants with a framework for how to control the risk and keep credit card details safe and secure.
EFTPOS New Zealand makes security a priority, so you can rest assured that all of our payment solutions are PCI compliant. Verifone – the global leader in payment security – ensures that transaction data protection is at the core of every device.
WHAT IS PCI AND HOW DOES IT APPLY TO ME?
PCI compliance goes beyond your payment solution provider. If you accept credit card details from your customers - or use a third party service provider to do so - you are responsible for ensuring that your customer’s payment details are secure.
There are a set of 12 PCI requirements designed to secure and protect customers' payment details. Most security breaches can be avoided if these requirements are followed. The bank that you have your credit card facility through will be able to provide you with comprehensive information on this subject.
