“To protect cardholder data, the PCI Data Security Standard

Compliance13 was created in 2006.  This organization requires merchants and other organizations to follow certain guidelines in collecting and storing, processing or transmitting cardholder information.

This is an ongoing process which involves:

  1.  Assessing cardholder data and the business owner’s IT assets and business proves to ensure there are no vulnerabilities in the storing of cardholder data.  There are training videos14 to help the small merchant to understand his/her responsibilities;
  2. Remediation in not storing cardholder data unless it is absolutely necessary;
  3. Reporting, which involves compiling and submitting compliance records and reports to the banks and card brands with which the business is authorized to do business.”

The book is available free on Amazon.  Get your copy today!

The book is also available at your local library on e-Zone. Newport, Middletown, and Portsmouth, Rhode Island libraries have e-Zone installed on their websites.


Rhode Islanders and Healthy Nutrition

I have been covering for a friend who owns a nutrition club in Middletown, Rhode Island and I am amazed at the number of people who are taking care of their bodies. I have met several people who have lost several pounds through nutritious protein shakes and working out at the local gym.

It is great to observe people trying to prolong their lives and even have a better quality of life. When people live longer, they need more savings set aside to ensure that they have an income throughout their retirement. This means planning for the future with retirement plans and life insurance. Because people are healthier, they can work more hours to earn extra income.

In conclusion, taking care of the body through diet and exercise will enable consumers to work more hours in order to eliminate their debt and accumulate more money.
