Valet operators should require PCI compliance in all technology

Plantation, Fla. November 2010 Not every valet operating system comes with PCI compliance certified by the PCI Security Standards Council. Those searching for a valet operating system should consider this factor when choosing a provider. A system without PCI compliance leaves the operator at risk for security breaches and theft of payment card data, loss of reputation, damaging lawsuits, and catastrophic revenue loss.
