[PODCAST] The Impact of Payments Compliance on Higher Education

This episode can also be found on Spotify and Apple Music.

Payments compliance in higher education is a complex issue that – if ignored – can threaten the financial stability of colleges and universities. As payments technology and payment methods evolve, the payments industry regularly updates operational standards and regulations to help protect payers and merchants from security risks and fraud.

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) which develops and drives adoption of data security standards for card transactions, is in the process of rolling out the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) v 4.0. This new global standard takes effect on March 31, 2024 and includes 53 new requirements that will most likely impact your campus.

In this conversation, Martha Wilson discusses an overview of the new standard and how the updates and changes affect higher education institutions. Additionally, learn best practices to assess your institution’s present security posture and how to achieve success no matter where you are in your PCI compliance journey.
