While the road to PCI compliance can seem long and daunting, it is possible – and with the right guidance, can be easier than you thought. So, for those feeling like pulling their hair out, worry not!
Check out this article in Retail Online Integration in which I outline four actions that are important to making PCI compliance a tangible and achievable reality:

- Get the business involved,
- Develop a plan, and
- Make education a priority.
Retailers and other companies required to be PCI compliant, we’d love to hear from you – please share your experience or questions.
