Security and Compliance

In recent years, the electronic payments industry has become highly regulated, which only makes sense as it manages and transmits sensitive personal and financial data. The purpose of the imposed regulations is to protect all parties in the electronic payments chain, (i.e., cardholders, merchants, processors and banks) from breaches that can result in identity theft and fraud. CMS makes it a priority to maintain the highest level of security measures and controls to protect sensitive data and we are diligent in remaining compliant with all government and industry regulations.


We strive to assist all of our merchants to do the same. The CMS Security & Compliance Center provides you with resources to help you maintain strong security controls as well. We believe knowledge is power. Look around and learn how you can ensure a safer experience.
