KBO Payment Processing is partnered with ControlScan to help businesses become and stay PCI Compliant.
Every merchant must complete a thorough PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire annually. The questionnaire is designed to reflect how merchants process credit cards, store sensitive data, and create and manage written security policies. Some merchants will require scanning if they process credit cards through a public facing IP address such as POS software through an internet connection or ecommerce merchants using shopping carts. If any data is transmitted throught the internet, the merchant will be required to have quarterly scans.
Based in Atlanta, ControlScan is a leading provider of PCI security solutions. KBO Payment Processing works jointly with ControlScan to ensure the merchant completes their annual questionnaire and scanning through several different methods. Upon initial activation of their merchant account, the merchant is given 30 days to complete the questionnaire. ControlScan will send reminder messages until merchant is compliant along with quarterly scanning reminders. If the scan fails, technical support will work directly with the merchant to cure the issue so the merchant is not breached.
Although this can be a process unfamiliar to the merchant, it is in their best interest to make sure all credit card data is secure in order to not have a breach. If a breach does occur, this can be disastrous to a merchant including fines from the card industries and lost business from future customers.
