Almost all merchants accept credit cards for payment.  PCI, or Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, applies to every one of those transactions.

With all the recent news about data breeches and lost customer data it is a good time to review your data security and do your annual review.  One of the best ways to stay compliant is by using a third party, like PayPal, who already meets the PCI rules.  Even if you use a qualified third party you need to insure your web interface meets compliance regulations as well.

You can visit the PCI Security Standards website for full details on compliance for your organization.
