Since 1978, Public Interest Communications (PIC) has been providing crucial telephone-based fundraising services for the most successful non-profit organizations, associations, public policy advocates, political and cultural institutions in America. With a massive investment in infrastructure and a dedication to ‘simply doing things right’, Public Interest Communications (PIC) success is based on respect and a genuine two-way communication process with its clients.
As an organization involved in fundraising, staying on top of all the state and local authority rules, regulations and restrictions is a major challenge, one which is further compounded by the need to comply with security based regulations such as PCI DSS.
PIC initially looked at PCI compliance in 2006, but the software and implementation costs at the time were prohibitive, giving the team pause for thought. However, being concerned as always about the need for a totally secure infrastructure, and with the growing profile of PCI DSS compliance as network attacks and breaches continue to make the headlines, PIC decided to revisit the initiative in 2011.
