FVC Educates Middle East on PCI DSS Compliance

FVC, a value added distributor across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, has begun a four-city seminar tour on the payment card industry data security standard (PCI DSS). The road show begins in Abu Dhabi and will stop in Dubai, Doha and Bahrain during the course of the week. FVC has partnered with Encode Middle East, a third party, vendor-neutral security service consultant.

Each half-day event, supported by FVC’s vendor partners TippingPoint, Barracuda, Vasco, and nCircle, will share factors concerning direct and indirect financial losses like financial penalties, image depreciation, operations disruption etc. along with its effect on deadlines and compliance. The seminars will also examine operational and technical information security initiatives to secure customer information; methods of establishing a balance between costs of compliance and overall benefits; and information on cutting edge security technologies that provide rapid remediation on identified technological and procedural gaps.

“PCI DSS applies to every organisation that processes, transmits and/or stores cardholder data,” said Dharmendra Parmar, general manager, marketing at FVC. “With these seminars, we hope to share information and tools that can help companies – mostly in the financial, hospitality and retail sectors – to prepare to fulfil this requirement.”

According to Parmar, complying with PCI DSS may prove to be a daunting process, primarily due to the large set of security requirements, the widespread implementation of security controls and the different enforcement programmes imposed by the payment brands.
