The June IT User Group meeting will be focused on Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. PCI compliance drives network integrity and secure, end-to-end transactions, supporting effective retail operations. PCI compliance protects customer privacy, as well as payment card and merchant data. The process requires retailers to perform a thorough audit of their networks, policies, and processes. Ignoring the PCI Compliance standard is risky and can result in fines or lose of credit card processing privileges. Security breaches can damage a company's brand, reputation, and lead to financial losses. Join us at this free informal discussion to learn more.
