PCI DSS Compliance program is designed to protect you and your business from a cardholder data breach.  PCI DSS applies to all merchants, regardless of size, that accept, transmit, or store any payment card information.  To make the certification process easier, the self-assessment questionaire (SAQ) has been simplified through our partnership with Security Metrics.  Enroll now at www.securitymetrics.com/pcidss/cms or contact our PCI department at 1-877-267-4324.  For merchants that do not complete their PCI compliance certification, in February 2018, CMS will begin billing a monthly non-compliance fee.


Security Metrics has also provided additional information pertaining to protecting your merchant account.  They provide several online courses that are free to access and use. These courses include "Data Security 101", "Policies and Procedures", How to Properly Manage Sensitive Data" and more.  visit their website at Security Metrics Academy.
