Retail VARs: Show Some Appreciation!

By The Business Solutions Network


Many of these columns include my strongly recommending, no, urging, you to take action on adopting new technologies or adjusting your business model to include more recurring revenue. This month, I’d like to take a break to put a spotlight on what I think are some impressive actions and to publicly hand out some kudos.

If you do any business in the retail or restaurant verticals, you should know that your association, the RSPA, has been hard at work in the past year representing your best interests.

For example, last May the RSPA was appointed to the 2013-2015 PCI Security Standards Council Board of Advisors. Joe Finizio, executive director of industry strategies and relationships, says, “Appointment to the PCI SSC Board of Advisors is an important opportunity for RSPA to ensure that the interests of our membership are taken into account in the ongoing development of PCI security standards.” Looking forward to that!
