Debit cards (often referred to as bank cards) and electronic benefits transfers (EBTs) require customers to enter a personal identification number (PIN) into a PIN pad or other PIN entry device (PED). PED compliance calls for rigorous security measures, such as triple DES encryption, fixed key security, and authentication software.
One way to minimize the risk of non-compliance is to upgrade to terminals that are EMV compatible. EMV is the global standard for payment processing technology, and it’s coming to the United States. EMV uses an integrated chip embedded in the card to hold all the cardholder information previously stored on the magnetic stripe, and more. And it contains advanced security technology that can help reduce data fraud. Our EMV-compatible terminals are all fully PCI compliant. Please click here for more information about EMV.
PCI Compliance Requirements
The data security standards outline specific requirements for the printing of credit card receipts. Only the last four digits of a credit card number may be shown and the expiration date must be obscured on all copies of a receipt. Use of noncompliant equipment that does not adhere to these standards can lead to fines and limited processing capability.
