After comprehensive security auditing, Scheidt & Bachmann has received certification under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and thus meets the strict security requirements of the credit card industry.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, also known as PCI-DSS, is a security standard used by the credit card industry. The standard meets the security requirements of major credit card companies. Today, the standard is valid around the world and defines regulations for the processing, storage and transfer of card and transaction data with the aim of minimising the risk of misuse and fraud and ensuring the data security of credit card data.
After an intensive period of development and testing, on May 17, Scheidt & Bachmann received certification under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard with no objections.
"As one of the leading manufacturers of ticketing systems for public transport systems globally we are hosting central background systems for more and more clients. In order to offer our clients the highest levels of security and reliability, the PCI-DSS standard is a matter of course. We are very pleased to have passed the test successfully and to operate certified and high-performing computer centres", says Lars Rembold, director of IT services at Scheidt & Bachmann.
After passing a test which covers in excess of 200 criteria Scheidt & Bachmann is now certified according to PCI-DSS at the highest requirement level. The certification is repeated annually for each individual client system ensuring that the PCI security standard is always followed.
