Is your business PCI Compliant?

Data security is an important issue for every business that accepts credit and debit cards as payment for goods or services.  The major card brands established the Payment Card Industry Council to oversee the Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) and to promote the security of the credit and debit card data being presented into their payment systems.  Although over 90% of all data breaches occurr at small businesses, validating PCI compliance helps ensure all businesses, big or small, are taking the necessary steps to protect their customers’ cardholder data against theft and ensure their business is protected against costly data security breaches.

For businesses processing merchant services with Monterey County Bank and Elavon, please know that Elavon’s PCI Compliance Program takes a comprehensive approach to assist your business in meeting PCI-DSS requirements.
