PCI-DSS represents a very strict set of requirements designed to ensure that companies who process, store or transmit credit card information are maintaining a secure environment.
BRIDGEPORT, Conn., Aug. 1, 2012-- Bongo International announced today they recently received the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) Level 1 Service Provider Certification, the highest certification level for payment data security in the eCommerce industry.
PCI-DSS represents a very strict set of requirements designed to ensure that companies who process, store or transmit credit card information are maintaining a secure environment. The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) was established in September 2006 to manage the ongoing evolution of PCI security standards and improve payment account security throughout the transaction process. The PCI-DSS is independently driven by major credit card companies (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB) to safeguard customer financial data. Compliance mandates that service providers meet and maintain stringent security benchmarks when they process and transmit cardholder information. More information on the council and standards can be found at http://www.pcisecuritystandards.org.
"Maintaining PCI Level 1 compliance demonstrates our ongoing commitment and investment in providing secure International eCommerce enablement solutions," states Federico Lara, CTO of Bongo International.
Bongo takes protection of personal customer information very seriously. To ensure certification, they passed a rigorous audit of data storage, encryption measures, network systems, access controls, threat and vulnerability management, monitoring and testing procedures, and security policies.
