Foregenix has been selected as one of 14 representatives to serve on the inaugural PCI SSC Brazil Regional Engagement Board.
Foregenix will represent PCI SSC participating organisations and PCI constituents in Brazil, advising and providing feedback and guidance on standards and programs development and adoption in Brazil.
The appointment follows Foregenix’s announcement of its first office in Brazil in January 2018.
Guilherme Scheibe, Managing Consultant for Foregenix Latin America, comments: “Our selection for the Qualified Security Assessor seat on the PCI SSC Brazil Regional Engagement Board is a real honour and testament to our commitment, knowledge and reputation in the field.”
PCI SSC International Director Jeremy King comments: “Understanding the key issues and challenges being faced in a particular country or region is critical, especially a region where we are still growing and developing our levels of support and adoption. As a member of the Brazil Regional Engagement Board, Foregenix will help us ensure that PCI Security Standards and programs are what we have always said - truly global, appropriate and applicable.”
PCI SSC Associate Regional Director for Brazil Carlos Caetano comments: “Brazilian companies have much to contribute to global payment security. I look forward to working with Foregenix and other members of the Brazil Regional Engagement Board to help the PCI SSC make payments safer, not only in Brazil but also around the world.”
The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) leads a global, cross-industry effort to increase payment security by providing industry-driven, flexible and effective data security standards and programs that help businesses detect, mitigate and prevent cyber attacks and breaches.
