Protect Your Business through PCI DSS Compliance Token-Based Digital Payments Reduce the PCI Scope of Standards for Aldelo Merchants
3-minute read --- Digital payments are everywhere, and yet less than 28% of the merchant population achieve compliance with the latest Purchase Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Requirements for meeting PCI DSS standards range anywhere from maintaining a secure network via firewall protections to properly managing payment transactions and sensitive cardholder information, such as through EMV-based digital payments.
By following the latest Purchase Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), restaurant owners secure electronic payment transactions made in-store and online, protecting their customers’ personal payment data, reducing chargebacks, and avoiding other financial pitfalls for their business. Because while not legally enforced, ignoring PCI DSS guidelines has significant consequences: restaurants can face multiple financial penalties up to and including denial of credit card processing, as well as put themselves and their customers at risk of digital payment fraud.
