ReD joins PCI Security Standards Council as participating organisation
As a Participating Organisation, ReD will work with the Council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards.
Carl Clump, CEO of ReD, said that the company welcomed the active role it would now take in the ongoing development of payment security standards.
“These standards are vital, and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to shape their future direction,” he said. “Every online business, from the largest corporation to the smallest internet store, has to be PCI compliant before they can safely accept card payments – so that consumers can be confident their personal information won’t be stolen”.
The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to information security controls and processes that ensure data integrity. There are twelve key requirements of PCI DSS level, and over two hundred twenty two sub-requirements.
“The PCI Security Standards Council is committed to helping everyone involved in the payment chain protect consumer payment data,” said Bob Russo, General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council. “By participating in the standards setting process, ReD demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.”
