How many credit cards get swiped/waved per day at their PoS terminals? If they don't have a 24/7 infosec team they're Doing It Wrong™.

I'm not sure that agrees with the franchise model. McDonald's corporate owns the real estate, but not most of the businesses. So most of those terminals aren't actually theirs.

It's not as if franchisees can just choose to purchase whatever equipment they want. It all has to come from corporate, so corporate is the place to enforce security standards.

Oh wow. That model is atrocious in terms of providing decent security.
