Protect Your Data with our PCI-Compliance Package

Visa® and MasterCard® have established industry security guidelines—the Visa CISP requirements—as they work to combat today’s ever-growing and persistent cyberthreats. Merchants currently operating without a PCI Compliance Certificate are paying non-compliance fees back to the processor. Let Innovative Merchant Systems help save your business money with our PCI compliance and data insurance package, available as an add-on with any contract fulfillment for a nominal monthly fee.

Our Innovative Merchant Systems PCI-Compliance/Data Insurance Package includes:

  • Assistance during and after a suspected or confirmed loss, theft, or data breach.
  • Allows you to act and respond to cyberthreats immediately.
  • PCI Compliance Certificate.
  • Elimination of non-compliance fees and theft penalties.

Understanding Non-Compliance Fees

Not only does the processor charge you a non-compliance fee for every Visa and MasterCard transaction, you may also expose your company to greater penalties if a fraud activity were to occur. If a Visa or MasterCard member fails to notify Visa Inc. Fraud Control immediately when a data breach occurs, the member is subject to a $100,000 penalty per incident. That fee can increase to up to $500,000 if you were operating without a PCI Compliance Certificate at the time of the breach.

The Innovative Merchant Systems PCI compliance and data breach insurance services will protect you from heavy non-compliance fees and penalties. With this type of added protection from Compliant Processing, you can grow your business with the peace of mind knowing your company and customer data is secure.
