PCI Pal, a secure payments provider to contact centers, today announced it has been recertified and awarded the latest standard from the Payment Security Standards Council, PCI DSS v3.2.1 certification. This certification ensures that its PCI solutions provide a secure way for businesses to manage payment information in contact center environments.

PCI DSS compliance is the most stringent information security standard required by leading credit card providers, including MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover Financial Services and JCB International. This certification ensures that PCI Pal customers handling sensitive credit card information have the appropriate security standards in place to ensure payment information is managed appropriately.

“The Federal Trade Commission has confirmed that fraud rates are at an all time high. And with the introduction of new data privacy legislation such as GDPR, it’s more important than ever for us to remain compliant with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards,” said James Barham, CEO, PCI Pal.

“Having been compliant since 2011, we pride ourselves in putting our customers’ data security first. We’ll continue to hold ourselves to the highest and most secure standards so that our customers can rest assured that sensitive payment data traded over the phone will remain within our walls,” Barham continued.
