Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania: For what is now the fourth year running, eCard Solutions Ltd has been successfully re-validated for compliance to the Payment Card Industries Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
For those not aware of the PCI DSS, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard was created by Visa, MasterCard, JCB, Discover and American Express to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce card fraud via its exposure. Validation of compliance is done annually by an external Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), appointed by the PCI Security Council, that creates a Report on Compliance (ROC) for organizations handling large volumes of transactions. eCard Solutions Ltd continues to be one of the only PCI DSS Compliant Third Party Processor (TPP) in East and Central Africa since becoming the first TPP to become compliant in 2011.
