Seems like everywhere you turn, organizations are leveraging kiosks in retail environments. Healthcare is no exception. In a push to improve the patient experience, increase efficiency and reduce costs, implementing kiosks has become a natural choice.
IRVINE, California, February 4, 2013 — TrustCommerce, leading provider of Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) payment solutions, is pleased to announce integration with Epic 2012 for payment processing in Resolute, MyChart and Welcome.
TrustCommerce is dedicated to providing solutions that remove credit card data from provider environments and reduce PCI scope. Currently, TrustCommerce supports full end-to-end encryption with Epic Resolute and Welcome through the use of encrypted card swipes and encrypted key entry. In addition, TrustCommerce is the only payment solution that supports a transparent redirect model for the online MyChart product, ensuring sensitive cardholder data never enters the healthcare organization’s environment. Healthcare organizations can use tokenization within Epic 2012 MyChart and Welcome, dependent on the client’s overall system design.
Merchant who store, process or transmit cardholder data, must be compliant with the PCI Data Security Standard. More often than not, PCI DSS Compliance is a starting point for protecting payments, not an achievement that can be crossed off a check list.
Headlines remind us of the ongoing risk of data compromise. A franchising company is the latest example. According to the company’s press release, an internal forensic investigation, launched after fraudulent activity was found on several payment cards that had been used at the company’s locations, identified suspicious files, including malware, on the licensees’ computer systems at 108 locations in 10 states. The franchising company is concerned that the suspicious files could indicate that an attacker(s) may have accessed data, including credit and debit card information. It is yet to be determined whether credit or debit card data was exposed.
To help you better understand how TrustCommerce’s security products could have helped prevent this “malware” attack, here are some key points.

U.S. Senators are again looking at crafting a law that creates a national standard for reporting data breaches. Referred to as the Data Security and Breach Notification Act of 2012 (S.3333), the draft bill would require businesses and government agencies to “take reasonable measures to protect and secure data in electronic form containing personal information.” The Federal Trade Commission would enforce the legislation, and fines for violating the law could reach up to $500,000 per incident.
There are currently 40 different state laws in place. This bill would override any existing state data breach legislation. Implementing a single law could simplify compliance and make for a more consistent notification process in the event of a breach.

How can merchants address the threat of a payment data compromise?
Credit and debit cards have rapidly become the preferred payment method across the globe. We all swipe our credit cards at the check-out counter and enter our credit card numbers into e-commerce websites, usually with little thought to where the data ends up. But there are people waiting on the other end of that transaction ready to capture payment data and use it fraudulently.
Network intrusions and data compromises continue to plague the payment card industry. At the 2012 RSA Annual Security Convention, RSAʼs Executive Chairman, Arthur Coviello, told the audience, “Our networks will be penetrated. We should no longer be surprised by this.” His statement came within months of the disclosure that RSA, one of the worldʼs largest and most respected security companies, had been breached and the code to SecureID, their two-factor authentication solution, stolen. Mr. Coviello then told the attendees, “The reality today is that we are in a race with our adversaries and right now, more often than not, they are winning.”
