Visa Publishes 10 Commandments for On-Line Merchants
Computerworld is reporting that Visa U.S.A. announced their Cardholder Information Security Program, a program designed to increase the security of all credit card transactions where the cardholder and his credit card are not physically present.
The Visa announcement included a list of best practices, dubbed "ten commandments" by Computerword. Many of these sound like common sense, but, we are constantly surprised by the number of installations that we visit or hear about where all of these best practices are not implemented.
We hope that all of our customers and trading partners look at these security best practices and realize that most of these practices should be used even when on-line transaction processing is not part of the Web Site's feature set. We are not providing this level of security to every customer today, but you can bet that we are working toward providing it ASAP.
