With fraudulent payment card transactions continually on the rise, it’s more important than ever that merchants protect themselves from potentially huge financial losses associated with a data breach. 1st US Merchant Services® offers a unique Data Breach Security Program specifically designed to help merchants meet the expenses resulting from a suspected or actual breach of payment card data.
The 1st US Merchant Services Data Breach Security Program offers peace of mind to merchants during an extremely vulnerable time with:
- A forensic audit as required by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) whenever a data breach is suspected to confirm whether a breach has actually occurred and to pinpoint vulnerabilities in the system.
- Industry fines and assessments met as required by PCI DSS in the event of an unintended breach of confidential customer information, regardless of how it happens.
- Issuer-related expenses that cover card replacements costs, credit monitoring and other expenses related to a breach.
Expenses from an actual or suspected data breach are met regardless of the business’s PCI compliance status as long as the owner is not involved in the breach.
