PCI DSS Best Practices for Micro-Merchants
As a follow-on to our November 2010 Webinar, Diversity Reigns When it Comes to PCI Compliance for Level 4 Merchants, we're taking a closer look at the smallest of the small merchants – the micro-merchants – to better understand the unique challenges they face with PCI compliance.
Micro-merchants employ fewer than 10 employees and rarely process more than 250,000 credit card transactions annually. Their size and limited resources greatly impact how they perceive data security and the steps they take to protect cardholder data.
Join ControlScan and Merchant Warehouse in a discussion about the most common myths and stumbling blocks faced by micro-merchants on the road to achieving PCI compliance, and what can be done to better educate and guide merchants throughout the process.
- Key findings related to the micro-merchant as discovered in the 2010 ControlScan and Merchant Warehouse joint merchant study
- Commons myths and stumbling blocks
- Best practices for micro-merchants and acquirers
- Chris Bucolo, Senior Business Development Manager, ControlScan
