What a Security Breach in Your POS Environment Could REALLY Cost You

The Saturn Partners, Inc. offers specialized Vulnerability Assessments that test and evaluate all steps along the path onto the payment gateway…. we assure total compliance with PCI guidelines.


With over a dozen years conducting network security and infrastructure vulnerability assessments for financial institutions worldwide, The Saturn Partners, Inc is uniquely qualified to help merchants fight data breaches, POS attacks, theft and data compromises of all types, no matter what size merchant operation you have.


If you electronically store cardholder data post authorization or if your processing systems have Internet connectivity


As all merchants accepting credit cards know, if a merchant electronically stores cardholder data post authorization and have external facing IP addresses, they MUST have a vulnerability scan done quarterly by a PCI SSC Approved Scanning Vendor (APV).  Merchants can use the chart below to determine their level of validation for compliance with PCI:

figure 06

Another important note to remember is that any merchant that has suffered a hack that resulted in an account data compromise may be escalated to a higher validation level.


As a merchant accepting payment through American Express, Visa, Master Card, Visa International, JCB or Discover, via any debit, credit or pre-paid cards branded with the five card association/brand logos, you cannot afford to be lax regarding PCI DSS compliance and testing of security levels of POS/MPOS systems.   Visit The Saturn Partners, Inc., Network Security Engineering at, email us at
