If your business accepts credit cards, it is mandatory that you are compliant with the PCI Data Security Standard, regardless of your size.
According to the PCI DSS, since 2005, more than 340 million computer records containing sensitive personal information have been involved in security breaches in the U.S. As a result, it is absolutely imperative that your business protect sensitive card holder data both during and after credit card transactions.
