Infosys BPO today announced that it has been certified compliant with the payment card industry's data security standards V1.2.1 (PCI-DSS).
PCI-DSS is a comprehensive set of standards that require merchants and service providers that store, process, or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to strict information security controls and processes.
The certification involves verification of the implementation of a number of mandated control objectives that are specific to technology design, network and physical data security.
''The certification is a natural outcome of the systematic procedures we have always followed and promoted to provide high level security while ensuring compliance for all clients,'' says Srikant Balan, head of risk management at Infosys BPO.
PCI data security standard is developed by PCI security standard council, a group of top card issuers in the world including Visa, MasterCard, Amex, JCB, and Discover.
Infosys BPO has operations in India, the Czech Republic, China, the Philippines, Poland, Mexico, USA and Brazil.
