Importance of Credit Card Processing Security

Credit card processing security is important because fraud is a concern for many businesses. The transactions which are most susceptible to fraud are CNP (card-not-present) transactions, such as those handled by online and mail order/telephone order (MOTO) merchants. Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take to lessen the likelihood that your business becomes a victim of online fraudsters and thieves..

Data Breach Protection

A data breach occurs when an unauthorized party accesses a merchant’s network and steals cardholder data. There are various types of breaches: network breaches (caused by hacking and skimming); malware and spyware; the physical loss of a credit or debit card, stolen paper records; and losses from employee dishonesty.

The potential financial damages can be costly. It’s therefore important that merchants and consumers alike be aware of the impact of data breach and how to guard against it in order to ensure credit card processing security.

Transaction Security

Most Financial institutions embed EMV chips in the debit and credit cards they issue. This helps to reduce liability risks.

Merchants can use POS systems integrated with security software that enables them to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS.)

EMV Chips have had a profound impact on the security of card payments. The benefit of EMV chips is that they store customer data on integrated circuits which generate a unique code for each transaction that is never stored or used again. Before EMV, card data was only stored on the magnetic strip on the back of the card, which made it easy for fraudsters to skim card data and then counterfeit cards.

Fraud Prevention Through PCI Compliance

PCI compliance simply means adherence to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, or PCI DSS, which are administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).

Once a year, merchants must submit proof of compliance to the Security Standards Council. Merchants who are not in compliance increase their risk for potential fraud losses and chargebacks should a data breach occur. Noncompliant merchants are fined and can lose their right to accept card payments if they don’t take steps to become compliant.
