Phoenix, AZ, February 21, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- A startling report from a payments industry insider reveals why most credit card processors do not want their merchants to become PCI compliant. Patrick Balboa, a former chief security officer and Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) expert, reveals in an exclusive report available from www.pcisecuritypolicies.com.
“I have been helping organizations – large and small – across the United States secure their networks from hacker attacks for almost 20 years,” said Balboa. “Since 2004, I have focused on credit card security. As a chief security officer for a large credit card processor, I was on the inside of the payment industry. What I learned would shock and amaze most merchants.”
A credit card processor allows merchants to accept credit cards at their place of business, online, or via mail/telephone order. Merchants pay a fee to processors for access to payment networks that allow them to take Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards. Credit card processors and acquiring banks require their merchants to be PCI DSS compliant, as specified by each card brand.
“What my free report explains is that while your bank or processor may offer compliance programs and give a lot of lip service to PCI, they really don’t want you to become compliant,” reveals Balboa.
