Merchants deploying payment terminals need to be aware of security risks to payment card terminals, and what they can do to mitigate them.

The UK Cards Association has produced guidelines for Card Terminal Security. These guidelines (available for download below) are intended to be used by retailers accepting or intending to accept face-to-face card payments and are designed to complement card industry rules and regulations and advice given by point-of-sale solution providers (including banks and third party suppliers). The advice and guidance offered should be considered when reviewing or developing security procedures and processes for the point-of-sale environment, particularly, but not exclusively, those relating to the acceptance of card-based transactions.
