All credit card processing must be PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standards) compliant per Visa and MasterCard requirements to be a merchant.

PCI-DSS is a framework of security regulations and protocols created by the big names in the credit card industry.  To meet this standard your staff, Technology Services, Accounting and the technology upon which it all rides must be accountable to for security of the transaction.  Both Accounting and Technology Services will help you through this process.
