Is your Credit Card
2008 all credit cards systems must comply with the latest security
implementations called PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security
Standard) in order to protect customer's card data.
does mean? If you are processing credit cards through your POS
system the POS software must encrypt all the data that is read
from the customer credit card and stored in your database, in simple
language: when the customer's credit card is read by the system all the
information before is stored or transmitted the program must be able to
make it unreadable to anyone except those possessing special knowledge
to read it back (it could contain characters, numbers and signs).
entire process will protect your customer's information and prevent
anybody from cloning, selling or using the information and it will
protect the integrity of your business avoiding any legal procedures
