A mobile device with a secure card reader creates an agile and affordable mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) and has been adopted broadly around the globe. But businesses using mPOS devices have the same responsibility for maintaining compliance with cardholder data as they do with fixed point-of-sale (POS). A secure card reader is critical, but not enough. You need to implement security to protect your customers, your data, and your business.
