As a merchant who accepts credit cards, you are ultimately responsible for protecting your customer’s cardholder data wherever it is processed, stored or transmitted.
Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance is a set of specific security standards created by the major card brands (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover) to protect your customer’s cardholder data from being stolen during a payment transaction and after. PCI compliance is required for all merchants that process credit cards, regardless of the size of the business.
You’ll receive the step-by-step information you need to complete the PCI DSS certification process and keep your customers’ data safe when they shop with you.
All of First American’s hardware and software solutions and gateways on the 1stPay Platform are fully PCI compliant. Tools such as EMV, tokenization and encryption complement our fraud prevention tools and processes to ensure transactions are safe for you and your customers.
