The recognized industry standard for payment card security, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), recently launched a new set of payment protection resources for small businesses which is appropriately called PCI Payment Protection Resources for Small Merchants. This is a timely launch, considering that small businesses around the world are increasingly at risk for payment data theft — and nearly half of cyberattacks worldwide in 2015 were against small businesses with fewer than 250 workers.
In response to this trend, and as a means to help small to midsize business merchants protect their own data – as well as their customers’ data – the PCI SSC Small Merchant Taskforce developed the new set of payment protection resources. This comprehensive set of new payment protection resources from the PCI Security Standards Council aims to help small to midsize businesses make security a priority.
