Accepting credit cards can add a level of convenience and credibility to businesses and vendors and allow them to work with a wider clientele base. However, all businesses should take note of the risks associated with credit card acceptance, namely the handling of others’ private data. Storing client data (such as credit card information) without taking necessary precautions can prove disastrous, especially if such information lands in the wrong hands.
Vision Payments Merchant Payment solutions provide security and assurance that other card payment solutions simply can’t offer, such as safer data transfer, secure gateways, and the CSR Breach Reporting Toolkit, a necessity to any business regularly handling personal identifiable information (PII). The CSR Breach Reporting Toolkit® assists companies in identifying potential risks associated with their data storage and acts as a response system in the event of a possible breach. Vision Payments Solutions is dedicated to informing businesses about these risks relating to data transfer and helping them implement solutions beneficial to both customers and vendors.
