When a customer makes a payment at a restaurant, it is done with the trust that their data will be kept safe, but there were 761 breaches and 83,176,279 records exposed in 2014. Some of the reported breaches include P.F. Chang’s, Dairy Queen, Jimmy John’s and Chick-Fil-A. A swipe, a few key strokes or signature — it all seems so simple. However, many restaurants, both large and small, know firsthand that keeping that data secure can be complicated or overwhelming. But with the right tools, it doesn’t have to be. The last thing a restaurateur wants to face is a data breach, which threatens their reputation and bottom line.

The decisions made to keep payment data secure are crucial for a brand and success of the company. Join industry executives on Twitter as they tackle everything from Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) to encryption and Near-Field Communication (NFC) to tokenization.
