Anyone setting up — or maintaining — an online store faces the issue of PCI compliance.
This is a set of standards set down by credit card companies to protect online shoppers from fraud and identity theft. Both problems are growing fast. In fact, more than 15 million Americans have their identities stolen every year, which costs financial institutions more than $50 billion in losses.
With stakes this high, your e-commerce operation simply must meet the PCI standards.
