    All merchants who accept credit cards are now subject to strict
    Payment Card Industry standards, rules, and regulations, which require a
    level of security that took about five years to finally implement.


    PCI exists to increase credit card security and, among other goals,
    to stave off government intervention. While significant effort has been
