Confusion, anger, bewilderment and indifference used to be the typical reactions to PCI compliance in the U.S. and Canada. What we are seeing now are fear, trepidation and a sense of resignation. There is no question that many c-store operators, petroleum marketers and retailers think that PCI compliance is too hard and perhaps not worthwhile. It is hard, it is difficult to stay compliant and yes, it can be expensive. All of which are true and as a c-store operator it may be difficult to come to grips with it.
So the question is, should you even bother? Can you get away without doing anything about it? Is there a quick fix – like ‘PCI compliance in a box’?
The truthful answer is there are no quick fixes, and there are no ways around it and there’s no such thing as ‘PCI Compliance in a Box’.
