Payment Card Industry Compliance

EMS understands the value of presenting numerous payment options to your customers in today’s competitive marketplace. To safeguard your acceptance of credit and debit cards and minimize security risks from the compromise of card data, EMS through Elavon has teamed with TrustWave – a Visa® and MasterCard® accredited Qualified Security Assessor and Approved Scanning Vendor – to help you comply with current industry security standards for your electronic payment solution.

Data security has become a primary consideration for every business that accepts credit and debit cards for the payment of goods or services. To promote the security of the credit and debit card payment systems, the major card brands established the Payment Card Industry Compliance Council (PCI) to oversee its Data Security Standards (DSS).

Merchants of all sizes must ensure that cardholder data is protected from a security breach. A typical breach costs a small business merchant $25,000 - $50,000 but can run much higher depending on the number of cards compromised. To protect cardholder data and mitigate financial exposure, it is imperative that all merchants validate and demonstrate PCI compliance.

EMS’s PCI Compliance Program takes a comprehensive approach to help your business securely manage cardholder data and ensure compliance while protecting your reputation and your bottom line. EMS’s program is focused on three key areas:

  • Education – materials and information to help you understand PCI-DSS compliance
  • Validation – tools to help you validate and demonstrate compliance and protect your business
  • Financial Protection – EMS’s programs through Elavon mitigate your financial exposure should a breach occur Protection begins the day you start as an EMS merchant.
