In the PCI compliance and security world, large restaurant groups and franchises must address multiple locations, third-party risks, and a variety of compliance requirements. Plus, according to SecurityMetrics’ forensic investigations, merchants in the restaurant industry continue to be plagued by data breaches, malware, and credit card skimming.
These merchants understand that they must be PCI compliant. But, in addition to their Annual Report on Compliance (ROC) by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), Quarterly network scan by Approved Scan Vendor (ASV), and Attestation of Compliance (AOC), these multi-unit restaurants are juggling network security across many locations.
Network security has many layers: there are steps, processes, people, and technologies to coordinate. Organizations need network security tools: internal/external scanning, firewalls, and log monitoring, to protect their network, detect vulnerabilities, and react to threats. They may also need to consult network data security experts to make sure they're not missing vulnerabilities or security gaps. And no security plan is complete without proper training of all stakeholders.
SecurityMetrics offers PCI Programs with a suite of products that help multi-unit restaurant groups address the demands of network security and compliance across multiple locations.
Recently, SecurityMetrics worked with Chestnut Land to implement PCI DSS compliance at 92 locations. Chestnut Land Operations Manager, Melissa Bohr recalls, “When we first started our PCI compliance journey, we were going into uncharted territory and it was overwhelming. Once I started working with SecurityMetrics, they guided me and walked me through the process so that I could feel confident every step of the way. When it came time to validate our compliance, we knew we had gone about it the right way.”
Casual restaurant chain, MOOYAH recognized their need for PCI compliance and credit card security at all locations. They partnered with SecurityMetrics’ award-winning customer service to confidently and efficiently provide the tools needed to achieve PCI compliance for their brand. Cody Connatser, MOOYAH Operations Services Specialist said, “Now, the majority of our brand is demonstrating full compliance. SecurityMetrics made an overwhelming process more organized, cost effective, and easily implemented within our brand and budget.”
