How sure are you about the security of card payments in India?

EBS shows you how…

Last month saw India’s second largest on-line payment provider, EBS, achieve the PCI DSS Standards of Compliance for Mastercard & Visa making it one of the most secure places to carry out online transactions. Despite of bad reputation of online card payments that resulted in data breaches (see CardSystems Solutions and Heartland Payment Systems); EBS proved that data can be actually kept safe when handled correctly.

Nowadays, you can buy practically anything through the Internet: from groceries to a house. With almost light speed credit card processing you can now more quickly purchase products or services and get your orders delivered to your doorstep. However, with millions of card transactions happening daily, the security of them has been under an immense risk. Organisations, which process them, need to be extra careful when handling customers’ data and make payments security their priority number one.

Protect your customers’ data – stay PCI DSS-compliant

Every organisation that accepts payment cards, i.e. Visa, Mastercard, Amex, in their business or on their website must comply with the PCI DSS. PCI DSS is enforced by the ‘acquiring bank’ through which organisations have their merchant accounts.  In October 2008, the PCI DSS was updated to version 1.2 and this is the version companies have to comply with.

What is PCI DSS?

  • The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was put together by the PCI Security Standards Council.
  • The members include Amex, JCB, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
  • The purpose of the PCI Standard is to decrease payment card fraud across the Internet and elsewhere and increase credit card data security.
