What Startups Should Know About PCI DSS

Whether you own an eCommerce store or a new brick and mortar enterprise, you’ll probably handle customer payment information regularly. Payment data contains lots of sensitive records that need to be kept safe. For example, a single credit card transaction may reflect a person’s name, address, location, and purchasing history. If this information were to end up in the wrong hands, your business would suffer from significant consequences. This is why complying with PCI DSS standards can help you avoid operational setbacks.

60% of companies that fall victim to data breaches aren’t able to recover. By following the guidelines set in place for handling payment data under PCI, you can avoid data hacks and ensure the longevity of your startup.
