A Holistic Approach to Merchant Payment Security

One in five small businesses are victimized by cybercrime each year, and 60 percent of those victims go out of business within six months of an attack.1 As hackers become more skilled in their approach, a data breach can happen to even the most sophisticated merchant. How do you defend your business from a possible attack?

In this eBook, you’ll learn about a holistic approach to payment security, offering the best path forward to protecting your business and your customers’ sensitive information. We’ll explain the “Five fingers of payments security,” a comprehensive plan to help you safeguard your business and build consumer confidence in your brand. Each “finger” represents an important security measure in and of itself; together, they form a fist to help knock the risk of fraud out of your business.

This eBook also explores how payment security provides a firm foundation for building revenue opportunities. Learn how an integrated, well-supported payments environment helps improve staff productivity and increases customer throughput. Gain insight into how you can use secure and accessible payments data to create customer promotions that increase traffic and encourage higher than average ticket sales.

Additionally, we’ll delve into the factors contributing to a secure environment for mobile POS transactions. With mobile software installation growth at 41 percent from 2014 to 2015, industry insiders anticipate there will be 3.6 million tablets in service at retail establishments by 2017.2 Learn how the proliferation of mobile devices introduces new security risks to the enterprise, and what you can do to mitigate these risks.

Attaining a secure payments environment is not optional for businesses to succeed today – and is not an easy task for merchants to achieve on their own. It’s important to engage trusted partners including accredited dealers and acquirers.

Find out what you need to know to protect your business, reassure your customers that their sensitive information is safe, and drive sales and revenue into the future. Take the first step by downloading A Holistic Approach to Merchant Payment Security.
