What is PCI DSS?

I have no idea, but if you accept credit card payment for registration at your meetings, it'd be a good idea to check out this month's MeCo chat, led by Jim Lewis of Best Meetings Inc. Here's some more info from the e-mail announcement:

    Do you take credit cards? If you are not compliant you can face fines of $10,000 per transaction. Do you know if your company is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)? Do you know if your online registration company is PCI DSS compliant? Do you know what level your organization is in dealing with PCI DSS compliance (They are from levels 1 to 4 and based on total amount of dollars transacted per month). This chat will a overview of what PCI DSS is and what you need to know to get your organization compliant and what to look for when using other service providers.

    James "Jim" Louis' experience flows into the technology area of meeting planning, website management, online registration and association management. Jim has been a presenter at the MSAE Technology Expo in 2006 and 2007 on the topics of On/Offline Registration Systems, Smart Phone Selection & Useful Tools and Online Community Building. Jim is employed by Best Meetings Inc. out of Bloomington, MN.
