Card payments, banks and payment service providers (PSP) are heavily regulated to ensure credit and debit card payment is secure. All transaction information sent between card terminals, merchant accounts and banks is encrypted and entirely tamper proof. Any sensitive stored data is also encrypted to ensure it can never be accessed by third parties. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) fully audit and regulate all processes and businesses involved within the industry, to ensure globally recognised security measures are met.
