Data Security Mandate
The payment card industry compliance and validation regulations apply to financial institutions, processors and businesses that accept credit cards. The rules spell out what security measures must be taken to protect the private information of cardholders during any transaction occurring with the use of a credit or debit card. Certain auditing procedures are also required.
Michigan Retailers Association has the easy-to-use tools to help our customers comply with all data security regulations. This documentation process is critically important to avoid the fines and fees necessary in the case of a forensic audit. Our goal as experts is to stand beside our customers to help them understand and comply with all necessary PCI regulations.
