"Scrutinize Your Third-Party Vendors"

"Scrutinize Your Third-Party Vendors"

Most bars & restaurants work with at least one outside vendor such as an employee payroll service, online ordering app, or loyalty program. With any third-party vendor that will have access to consumer payment information, make sure they’re PCI compliant, and that their security measures are equivalent to what you would have. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards requiring all companies (regardless of size) that receive, process, store, or transfer credit card information to do so in a secure environment. For vendors with access to employee information, such as a payroll vendor, find out how that information is stored and protected. By managing third-party access privileges, those vendors can spend more time supporting customers while you can spend less time worrying about security issues. Also, make sure that employees only have access to the information they need. An HR person needs access to payroll and employee information, but a server or bartender likely does not.
