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.
As a Participating Organization, KAL has access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, and can provide feedback on the standards and become part of the growing community that now supports PCI SSC. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entityâs best protection against data criminals. As a Participating Organization, KAL, can add its voice to the process.
âThe PCI Security Standards Council is committed to helping everyone involved in the payment chain protect consumer payment data,â said Bob Russo, General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council. âBy participating in the standards setting process, KAL demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.â
âKAL is focused on providing world-class software for our banking customersâ ATM networks. Security of the ATM network and the cardholder data is absolutely vital in order to preserve the trust we all have in those networks. We believe that the PCI DSS plays a critical role in this and we are very excited to participate in the PCI Security Standards Councilâ said Aravinda Korala, CEO of KAL.
