Comdata Corporation, provider of the new Smart Solutions suite of point-of-sale systems for travel plazas and convenience stores, announced today its support of the PCI Security Standards Council. As a participating organization, Comdata works with the Council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards.
âBy participating in the standards setting process, Comdata demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.â
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. More information on the council and the standard can be found at www.pcisecuritystandards.org.
As a participating organization, Comdata has access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, is able to provide feedback on the standards and is part of a growing community that includes more than 500 organizations. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entityâs best protection against data criminals. By serving as a participating organization, Comdata is adding 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, Comdata demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.â
âData protection is critical to Comdata, and we are honored to be an active participant in shaping the standards that will ensure safe business practices,â said Joseph Daly, executive vice president of operations for Comdata. âThe PCI Security Standards Council is a driving force for payment policy, and they share our commitment to providing the highest standards of data security for our customers.â
