Retail Overview

Companies accepting credit or debit cards in exchange for goods or services must already be compliant with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) requirements. Any merchant that does not comply with PCI DSS is at risk of extensive fines.

To ensure that a PCI compliant merchant is able to incorporate new technologies and to protect against new ways of hacking personal data, continuous auditing is required to retain PCI DSS compliance.

While large company breaches generate the most headlines, smaller franchises and retailers are under constant threat of theft or damage. In the case of downtime or a data breach event, costs can quickly escalate. The Aberdeen Group found that downtime costs the average mid-sized business $74,000 per hour lost, and about $881,000 annually.*
