I'm going to focus on some of the result specific to retailers with 1-50 employees and processing under $500,000 annually (which would approximate to annual gross sales of less than $800,000 annually). Of the survey respondents...
- 71% feel that they are not at risk for a data breach
- 64% have no action plan should a breach occur
- 45% have no employee designated to check network and related security
- 36% don't feel that PCI compliance is a priority
If you are not sure about your PCI Compliance status, please contact the company that provides your merchant services (credit and debit card processing) to ensure that your hardware, software, and network equipment are PCI complaint.
