Alex Holden, chief information security officer of Milwaukee-based Hold Security, says he discovered the breach at Corporatecaronline more than a month ago.

    I am a merchant services provider, and I would caution against using your own database to maintain payments information, even with the well publicized hacks. Unless you keep the information on a password protected PC that has no option to connect to the internet and/or connect storage media to, the same thing can happen to you. If nothing else, using a 3rd party company allows you to divert the perceived blame. Beyond that, when it is your own servers that are hacked, the fines are higher.
