Shift4 Was Not Impacted by Global Payment Breach

Shift4 reports that they have not been affected by the
Global Payment breach.

A Shift4 representative notes that they surmise an
organization had access to some form of reporting
portal provided by Global Payments – perhaps one of
their ISO’s specializing in the car parking space
provided a path into a limited area of Globals

It is also noted that unfortunately it takes some time for a
comprehensive report to hit the media leaving retailers to
speculate and at times causing undue alarm.

One Step Retail Solutions message to retailers is to:
a) Get educated and
b) Ensure that a layered approach is taken and that you
have all PCI compliancy points not only put into place but
updated and reviewed regularly.
