As a small business owner, you pour your heart and soul into the services and products that you sell. Unfortunately, passion isn’t enough to prevent a security disaster—just one breach could destroy everything that you’ve worked to build.
That’s why you need a trusted partner who can do the heavy lifting and provide an extra set of eyes for you. While you focus on your core business, you can rest assured that your offerings, and most importantly your customers, are safe and secure. Here’s how Visa keeps its small business customers safe:
Empowering secure payments: Chip-enabled payment terminals at the register can help business owners address the threat of in-store payment card fraud. Visa empowers merchants of all sizes with the resources necessary to upgrade their terminals. When a consumer uses a chip enabled credit or debit card, a unique code is generated to help protect the transaction. The added security makes chip card data a less attractive target for criminals to steal.
Education: Security and fraud detection are complex operations with many moving parts. With so much change coming to the small business community, Visa is committed to helping companies and consumers have the information that they need to transition to new technologies—like chip—seamlessly.
Community partnerships: In March 2015, Visa kicked off a partnership with the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce at their Small Business Entrepreneurship Showcase. The initiative featured a tour alongside the U.S. government, local chambers of commerce and merchants. This initiative marks the beginning of many future outreach efforts.
