Hot NOT to get hackedWith a number of pizzeria credit card data breaches in the news recently, restaurant operators worry that they could be at risk. In a new video, we outline 10 things every restaurant operator should know to lock out hackers and safeguard customer data. 

Having your personal credit card information stolen is a headache. Having your guests’ data hacked? A nightmare. For a restaurant operator, the fallout from a breach could be devastating.

Restaurant owners bear most of the risk, responsibility, and costs associated with a data breach in their restaurants. Following a breach, owners face hefty fines, privacy notifications, ongoing audits, and mandatory reporting. And because most operators lack the resources that larger companies have to protect themselves, restaurants have become the #1 target of hackers and data thieves.

This short video outlines the 10 things every restaurant operator should know to lock out hackers and safeguard customer data.

Take a few minutes to find out:

  • How to secure your POS network.
  • What to do—and NOT to do—to protect customer data.


In this short video, you will learn the most important steps you need to take to secure your customers’ card data and safeguard your business—and get links to more resources for help.

If you’re very networking-savvy, some of the illustrations in this video may strike you as cheesy. But they get the message across—and the message is crucial
