PCI Compliance

Today I am changing subjects from mostly technical to a topic of electronic transaction information security. Payment Card Security, referred to as PCI compliance has become quite the buzz lately. Many merchants who accept credit and debit cards have known about the requirements for some time. Protecting customers information should be and is considered a top priority by almost every merchant doing business on the web or in a brick and mortar establishment. With many recent breaches in security from highly organized hackers, renewed emphasis is being put on all forms of electronic payment. If you are a merchant that accepts payment cards, you are required to be compliant with the PCI Data Security Standard. You can find out your exact compliance requirements only from your payment brand or acquirer.
