Tokenization Specialist Releases Cyber Security White Paper

Oct. 6, 2010

In conjunction with October’s National Cyber Security Month, online credit card processor 3Delta Systems Inc. released a white paper that details best practices for protecting personally identifiable information from hackers. Stopping Data Cyberthieves in their Tracks details how tokenization, in which the company specializes, enables merchants to safeguard credit card data by storing it offsite. "Because every point at which credit card data is handled must be secured, conforming with PCI rules as well as building and defending one's own data fortress can be extraordinarily difficult and prohibitively expensive," said Aaron Bills, founder and chief operating officer of 3Delta Systems. "Organizations that collect and store that data themselves often find the process to be a huge headache with potentially significant liabilities rather than a convenience for their customers. Transferring sensitive credit card and payment transaction data off site, where it is encrypted and stored at highly secure, PCI-compliant processing centers, is often the best solution."
