What is it?
PCI is a security requirement created by the major credit card brands (Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express) in an attempt to reduce fraud and bring all companies who take credit cards up to a minimum level of security.
What is the impact?
The penalties for not complying with the PCI regulations can be very costly. If your company ever has credit card records stolen and you are not PCI compliant, you are subject to fines from the card brands that can be in excess of $100,000. Your merchant service provider is also likely to charge you a monthly fee during the time that your business is not compliant. In the worst cases, the card brands could take away your ability to accept credit cards, which would cripple or shut down most small businesses.
