Industry Regulations

Electronic payment processing is a highly-regulated industry, which is to be expected since it deals in sensitive and private personal financial information. The goal of these regulations is to protect all parties involved in electronic transactions — cardholders, merchants, processors and the issuing banks — from identity theft and fraud.
