October 1, 2010 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – In response to the rapidly expanding world of e-commerce, major credit card providers including VISA and MasterCard have banded together to develop a set of standards designed to protect consumer cardholder information when interacting online with banks and merchant service providers.
Robert Sauchyn, LFC President says, "PCI Compliance involves adhering to the established security standards put forward by the industry, which since June 2005, have included a quarterly network scan as well as an annual compliance questionnaire to be completed by all online merchants."
"Timely compliance reports are crucial for clients looking to assure their customers that it is safe to purchase products and services through their websites," says Andrew MacCorquodale, Vice-President, "and each scan result provides an overview of security status along with a submission-ready PCI Compliance Report."LFC Hosting
