iVeri Payment Technologies, an African payment gateway and mobile banking system firm, has validated compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Trustwave performed the PCI DSS compliance validation.
PCI DSS is the payment card industry security requirement for entities that process, transmit and/or store cardholder data, and has been endorsed by all the major card brands – Visa Inc., MasterCard Worldwide, Discover Network, American Express and JCB. To validate compliance with the PCI DSS, iVeri had to demonstrate compliance with 12 security requirements by thoroughly reviewing its IT environment and information security policies and procedures.
“It has taken a significant investment and a huge amount of effort from everyone at iVeri to ensure we achieved each part of the required process. Changing the processes and the way people work has been the most challenging aspect of the project, but now we’re a more secure organisation channelling that benefit to our customers,” said Roland Elferink, development director at iVeri.
