Ecommerce Businesses Under Gun To Become PCI DSS Compliant
So if you are an ecommerce business owner don't be surprised by a letter from your bank stating that it is now a requirement for you to signup for their compliance management program.
If you think this doesn't apply to you because you are just a small business, think again, hackers are targeting small businesses precisely because they are ripe for the picking and quite frankly they can get in and out of your unprotected data quicker than you can say "Bob's your Uncle!"
So don't get caught with your pants down around your ankles, tighten the belt and get your business PCI DSS Compliance certified.
Not doing so will not only put you and your business at serious risk for some very nastey fines, but you can expect to lose 65% of your business due to a data breach when the word gets out that you were negligent.
Oh, and the word will get out...
