Cyber security is something that all businesses need to be concerned about, however, there are a lot of café owners that are not taking this threat seriously. Did you know that 74 per cent of small companies suffered a data breach in 2015? It doesn’t matter whether you run a small local café or a massive chain across the country, you need to take the necessary steps to protect your confidential data. Failure to do so could see you face monumental non-compliance costs, fraud losses, remediation expenses, and reputational damage. Is this something your business would be able to come back from?
Don’t take the risk. If you take payment by card at your café, be it debit card or credit card, you need to make an effort to protect your customers’ payment information. All businesses need to comply with PCI DSS – the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. This outlines 12 requirements that need to be adhered to. If you don’t do this, you can expect your café to take a huge financial hit in the form of large fines.
The issue is that a lot of businesses do not understand what is required of them under PCI DSS. Moreover, there are a lot of small café owners who do not have the resources to invest heavily in security systems and personnel. Luckily, you don’t have to, as this is where RetailCompli comes in. This is an affordable and effective cloud-based network security solution that gives small businesses the ability to compete with larger chain restaurants when it comes to protecting their business.
