Why Data Security Should Be Priority Number One

credit card payment

Data security should be your top priority, to protect your business and your customers. Organizations are legally obligated to protect customer and user data from being lost or stolen and ending up in malicious hands. 

Data cybersecurity is also a way of preventing the reputational risk that goes with data breaches of any kind. For example, just this past June, a massive hack of a file transfer tool, MOVEit, has impacted over 200 organizations and affected up to 17.5 million individuals as of July 2023.

PCI Compliance Made Simple 

Because data breaches can be extremely expensive and damage your company’s reputation, Celero’s payment and business management solutions offer the highest proprietary data security. Coupled with  Payment Card Industry data security standard (PCI) compliance, your data is secure with Celero.

PCI requirements ensure that all companies that process, store, or transmit card information must always maintain a secure data environment. Card members and the businesses they transact with are always building mutual trust. This confidence leads to repeat purchases while improving a brand’s loyalty. It aids in preventing further breaches and related lawsuits, helps promote data security worldwide.

Additional Safety Measures 

Just the start of data protection, the PCI standard is only as good as the businesses that rely on it. Further preventions of data breaches must include:

  • Self-checkout monitoring of terminals by workplace staff.
  • Regularly updating point-of-sale (POS) software.
  • Performing spot-check audits.
  • Maintaining documentation relative to PCI compliance and encouraging better safety habits with employees.
