As a follow up to the May newsletter article, “Credit Card Compliance: What You Need To Know”, July 1, 2010, marked the date that credit card processing companies must validate that their customers are using a PA-DSS-certified payment application. Although Sage ERP Accpac does not process or transmit credit card data, it does store data. To help our customers comply with PCI and PA-DSS requirements, Sage has created a scrub utility to safely remove this data. Failure to run the utility could result in fines and penalties, and it may include the risk of losing the ability to process credit card transactions altogether! We strongly encourage you to implement and deploy the utility by visiting www.sageaccpacinfo.com/PCI.
Additional information regarding PCI compliance is also available at this website.
