Thales to Participate in Standards Setting Body Protecting Payment Cardholder Data
Thales has joined the PCI Security Standards Council as a new participating organisation. In this role, the company will work with the Council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards. The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa, 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 organisation, Thales will now have access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, be able to provide feedback on the standards and become part of a growing community that now includes more than 500 organisations.
