What is the eCommerce Committee?

The E-Commerce Committee is a cross-functional group created by the Comptroller's Office under the University Polices and Procedures 7.5.2 "University Acceptance of Credit Cards." The committee governs and guides the universities use and acceptance of E-Commerce. Furthermore, the group assists with PCI compliance and protecting the University against the exposure and possible theft of account and personal cardholder information that has been provided to the University. The E-Commerce Committee governance applies to all Illinois State University departments and affiliated units, employees, contractors, consultants, temporaries, and other workers.
