Information Security Expert - POS Credit Card Processing
An information security expert with experience in point of sale credit card processing was needed for an action claiming violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The plaintiffs alleged that the defendant, a provider of accounting software solutions, violated FACTA, the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, which amended FCRA. FACTA specifies that no expiration dates or complete card numbers should be printed on credit card or debit card receipts provided at the point of sale. At issue was whether the defendant violated the Act's willful misconduct standard and owed damages for printing prohibited information on debit card receipts issued to consumers.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate information security experts familiar with point of sale credit card transactions and the government and private regulations that apply to them. Familiarity with the defendant's accounting software products was also desired.
