If you collect money from Debit or Credit Cards you may be panicked into jumping through all sorts of hoops. There are companies out there who would just love to panic you and get you to sign up to one of their audits and take your money. Scam might be too strong a word but there are people jumping onto the bandwagon and scaring small businesses.
Well rightly there are standards and you need to keep within them and they have recently been upgraded. Take your time, speak to your bank and look at the questionnaire on the PCI Standards website. PCI = (Payment Card Industry). Speak to other companies with caution – there is what I’d call fast practice. So don’t panic.
