Our final post in this series brings us to the topic of data security in restaurants, where, all too often, credit cards go missing, numbers get stored in the wrong place, or both. Not only do you have to keep a vigilant eye on how sensitive data is being handled, but also where it is stored and the strength of the storage’s security. According to Radiant Systems, the cost of a data security breach is enough to disrupt your business, with the credit card brands charging fining you anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000. It happens often enough to scare some would-be restaurant owners away from the idea. Needless to say, it pays to keep everything locked tight and out of sight.
