PCI Compliance is Critical for BetterWalker Users

Posted on Thu, Jun 22 2017 @ 09:53 AM

A common misconception by many small businesses is that they are too small to have to worry about PCI compliance. This couldn't be further from the truth. If you accept credit cards, you are required to be PCI compliant. If you are not, your dog walking business can face very steep fines. This is where the BetterWalker and Novera Payment Solutions payments integration comes into play. Our integrated payments solution is PCI compliant and EMV ready.

It's important for you to be informed about PCI Compliance, however.

Here's what you need to know.

You are solely responsible for securing your customer cardholder data to meet Payment Card Industry rules.

Small businesses are prime targets for data thieves ... in fact, they are some of the biggest targets because they are the easiest targets. It’s your job to protect cardholder data at the point-of-sale. If cardholder data is stolen (and it’s your fault) you could incur fines, penalties, even termination of the right to accept payment cards, which could be catastrophic for your business.

better-walker-2.jpg

Why Does PCI Compliance Matter for Your Business?

According to the PCI Security Standards website, more than 340 million computer records containing sensitive personal information have been involved in security breaches in the U.S. since 2005. Criminals target small merchants because most have minimal security for cardholder data. More than 80% of attacks target small merchants.

If you are at fault for a card holder security breach, your small business can face:

  • Fines and penalties
  • Loss of the ability to accept payment cards
  • Cost of reissuing new payment cards
  • Legal costs
  • Fraud losses
  • Loss of the business

What to Secure

Focus first on protecting the cardholder data under your control.

You are responsible for protecting cardholder data at the point of sale, and as it flows into your credit card payment system. The single best step you can take is to not store any cardholder data.

PCI compliance includes protecting:

  • Card readers
  • Point of sale systems
  • Store networks & wireless access routers
  • Payment card data storage and transmission
  • Payment card data stored in paper-based records

Small Businesses May Evaluate with a Self-Assessment Questionnaire

Most small businesses can use a self-validation tool to assess their security for cardholder data, which includes a short list of yes-or-no questions for compliance. You can access self-assessment questionnaires on the PCI Security Standards website.

How to Meet the PCI Security Standards

The PCI Security Standards website is an invaluable resource for small businesses working to be PCI compliant. Their suggestions include:

  • Buy and use only approved PIN entry devices at your points-of-sale. 
  • Buy and use only validated payment software at your POS or website shopping cart. 
  • Do not store any sensitive cardholder data in computers or on paper.
  • Use a firewall on your network and PCs.
  • Make sure your wireless router is password-protected and uses encryption.
  • Use strong passwords.
  • Regularly check PIN entry devices and PCs to make sure no one has installed rogue software or “skimming” devices.
  • Teach your employees about security and protecting cardholder data.
  • Follow the PCI standard ongoing 3-step process (below)

PCI Compliance: Ongoing 3-step process

  • Assess
    This includes identifying cardholder data, taking an inventory of your IT assets and business processes for payment card processing, and analyzing them for vulnerabilities.
  • Remediate
    Includes fixing vulnerabilities and not storing cardholder data unless you need it.
  • Report
    Includes compiling and submitting required reports to the acquiring bank and card brands you do business with.

The bottom line is that PCI compliance DOES MATTER no matter what the size of your business. We understand that it can seem cumberson for small businesses, but that's no reason to put it off or ignore it. The livelihood of your business may be at stake if you suffer a data breach.

The Novera Payment Solutions team works with small businesses like yours to help alleviate the burden of meeting the PCI compliance standards. It's just one of the reasons that BetterWalker has chosen Novera Payment Solutions as a merchant partner to provide credit card processing for their users!

With Novera Payment Solutions and BetterWalker, you can rest assured that the payment processing system for your dog walking business is PCI Compliant.

PCI Compliance - What You Need to Know About PCI 3.0

Posted on Thu, Jul 30 2015 @ 12:32 PM

With several businesses recently experiencing data breaches, it's more important than ever to protect your business and cardholder data from hackers. What many small businesses don't know is that the steps toward PCI compliance have changed with the Jan 1, 2015 introduction of PCI 3.0. Here's what you need to know!

pci compliance

Why did the standards change?

The PCI Standards are updated based on feedback from the industry and response to current market needs.

Drivers for this change included:

  • Lack of education and awareness
  • Weak passwords, authentication
  • Third-party security challenges
  • Slow self-detection, malware
  • Inconsistency in assessments

The changes in version 3.0 were designed to help organizations take a proactive approach to protect cardholder data that focuses on security, not compliance, and makes PCI DSS a business-as-usual practice.

Education and awareness

Lack of education and awareness around payment security, as well as poor implementation and maintenance of the PCI Standards, lead to many of the high-profile security breaches that have been in the news. Updates to the standards are geared towards helping businesses and organizations better understand the intent of requirements and how to properly implement and maintain controls across their business.

What's New?

  • Best practices for implementing security into business-as-usual activities to maintain ongoing compiance
  • Navigating the PCI DSS guidance was added for easier understanding of each requirement and security goal
  • Req. 8.4 - Password education for users
  • Req. 9.9 - POS security training and education

Increased flexibility

Changes in PCI DSS and PA-DSS 3.0 focus on  the most frequently seen risks that lead to incidents of cardholder data compromise. These include weak passwords and authentication methods, malware, and poor self-detection. Added flexibility on ways to meet the requirements enables business and organizations to take a more customized approach to addressing and mitigating common risks and problem areas.

What's new?

  • Req. 8.2.3 - allows for organizations to implement the password strength appropriate for its security strategy
  • Req. 10.6 - More flexiblity to prioritize log reviews based on the organizations risk management strategy

Security as a shared responsibility

Today’s payment environment is complex, creating multiple points of access to cardholder data. Changes introduced with PCI DSS and PA-DSS focus on helping business and organizations understand their PCI DSS responsibilities when working with different business partners to ensure cardholder data security.

What's new?

  • Guidance on outsouorcing PCI Dss responsibilities
  • Req. 12.9 - PCI DSS responsiblities for service providers

In order to stay competitive in terms of security and compliance, businesses and organizations need to have a structured and continuos approach to solving ongoing security challenges, but it has to be easy enough to implement every day.  This is what PCI 3.0 is all about.
