Restaurants are a prime target for cyber criminals, and the success rate of their exploits and the financial damages they inflict are staggering: The average data breach of a non-PCI compliant restaurant is $80,000, and many don't survive.
Credit card compromise is the silent killer of restaurants, and FastCasual.com is hosting a free webinar, "The Silent Restaurant Killer — Customer Data Breach," at 2 p.m. EDT, Oct. 4 to help operators avoid such data breaches.
Although PCI compliance was created by the major card brands in 2006, to help merchants prevent credit card theft, the majority of U.S. restaurants are still not PCI compliant. The market is filled with accurate information around the requirements of all operators to demonstrate PCI compliance. Many owners have the mistaken understanding that simply using a PCI-compliant POS system makes their restaurant safe and PCI compliant, said Glenn Moore, VP of marketing for ANXeBusiness Corp, a company that specializes in providing PCI compliance and security solutions to the restaurant industry.
During the webinar, Moore will share tips on the following:
- What it takes to become PCI compliant;
- How Cyber criminals are attacking restaurants; and
- How to prevent a restaurant from becoming the next victim.
