Security Advisory

Jul 27, 2018 | Tips

It’s time again to remind you to be vigilant in safeguarding your point of sale system from hacker’s malware and ensure you are following your merchant PCI DSS responsibilities. There has been a dramatic increase in the number and sophistication of hacker attacks as recently highlighted in the news with some of our competitors.

Download our advisory sheet for a complete list of potential vulnerabilities, types of attacks to look out for, and what you can do if your system is compromised. Be sure to bookmark this page, as we’ll be updating the sheet with any changes via this webpage.

We recommend that you contact your Squirrel representative to discuss additional tools such as EMV and Point to Point Encryption (P2PE) to assist you in combatting these persistent and escalating threats.
