Vendors and network use risk for credit card/EFT transactions
Wondering if anyone has a policy or risk assessment on use of their college network (wired port, routing, and Internet connection) by 3rd party vendors for transmission of encrypted credit and debit card transactions. We've got a vendor who wants to set up a "self service" cafe in our Library. Students would swipe their credit/debit card on their equip, and presto, they get a sandwich out of a machine. The vendor wants us to provide a wired connection to the Internet for their machine. We feel the vendor should pay for their own separate ISP connection and wired pathway, but wondered if others have a risk assessment, policy, SLA, data, or advice on it.
Thanks in advance for any input,
