Azerbaijan's largest "cloud" provider looks to get PCI DSS certification
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 30
By Huseyn Veliyev - Trend:
The Azintelecom LLC is working to receive a certificate of compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the company told Trend Oct. 30.
The company said this is included in the company's priority plans for 2019 and the work in this area is already underway.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is associated with monetary transactions, which falls within the scope of interests of financial institutions.
The presence of a PCI DSS certificate is one of the most important factors when the “cloud” services are chosen by the banking organizations and enterprises engaged in processing of personal data related to plastic cards.
The PCI DSS requirements must be compulsorily complied with by any companies dealing with payment systems (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc.). These requirements guarantee protection against theft of customer information and other fraudulent actions usually committed during implementation of the banking transactions.
