“Drop the Data”
Learn How to Easily Protect Customer Payment Card Data 
and Reduce Liability to Your Business

If your business offers customers the convenience of credit card or debit card payments, then you’ll want to attend this important educational seminar to learn how to protect your business from the dangers of storing payment card data. 

Think this is a problem just for big businesses? Think again. Increasingly, small businesses are being targeted by these sophisticated and relentless criminals. In fact, small merchants accounted for more than 80 percent of the data security breaches in 2007, according to Visa.   While few small business owners can also claim to be security experts, there are some easy steps that can be taken to reduce your risk and protect your businesses and your customers.  

Join us for an informative breakfast where experts from Visa will outline the risks of retaining cardholder data and provide an easy-to-understand plan of action for your business.   We hope that you can join us for this exciting event and informative discussion.
