Are your stores compliant? Take the Omega compliance quiz to find out.
Data security starts with PCI compliance, it doesn’t stop there.
If you think your stores are compliant, think again.
Faced with the growing number of data breaches among retailers of all sizes, the Payment Card Industry
Council introduced the updated version PCI DSS 3.2. The rigorous new guidelines require Level 2 merchants meet stringent standards and demonstrate continuous compliance all through the year.
Depending on the current state of your data security, compliance is a multi-stage process that can take months to achieve.
