Announced last week, the Small Merchant Taskforce will be co-chaired by Barclaycard and the US-based National Restaurant Association (NRA).
The aim is to provide cross-industry expertise for smaller merchants, explaining how they can better protect customers’ payment card data.
The group will offer best practice advice on aspects such as working with security assessors, vendors and security providers, as well as guidance tailored specifically for small businesses to help them benefit from existing “PCI best practices, standards, training programs and solutions.”
Further insight on current market trends, issues and concerns will also be made available via the PCI Council.
