PCI DSS Compliance
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is a set of security standards in the banking industry whose main objective is to prevent the leakage of sensitive cardholder data during the processing of card transactions.
It’s not just a necessary formality
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is a set of procedural and technical standards designed by the leaders in the card transaction market, Visa, MasterCard and American Express. The aim of the methodology is to increase the security of payment cards, eliminate transaction fraud or misuse of payment data. The PCI DSS methodology is based on the ISO 27000 series of standards, so we are prepared for ad hoc certification not only technically, but also procedurally.
We are currently working together with the German branch of TÜV SÜD to certify that our internal processes and technical measures comply with PCI DSS. So far, we have a preliminary declaration of compliance with the standard and we meet its requirements both procedurally and technically.
