PCI DSS Compliance for TeleCity Group

TeleCity Group : 03 July, 2009  (Company News)
Trustwave validates TeleCity Group as compliant with the Payment Card Industry DSS
TelecityGroup Netherlands has been validated compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) as a Level 1 service provider by Trustwave, a provider of on-demand data security and payment card industry compliance management solutions to businesses and organisations throughout the world.

PCI DSS is the payment card industry security requirement for entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data, and has been endorsed by American Express, Discover Network, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa, Inc. As a data centre operator, TelecityGroup Netherlands does not process or transmit cardholder data, but its PCI DSS compliance validation does alleviate some of the requirements mandated for its customers when validating their own compliance.

To validate compliance with the PCI DSS, TelecityGroup Netherlands had to demonstrate compliance by thoroughly reviewing its physical access controls, IT environment and information security policies and procedures. TelecityGroup Netherlands has demonstrated that it meets the strict security requirements for PCI DSS, which apply to its data centre. An annual on-site evaluation forms part of this validation.

Robert McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave says: "Our findings demonstrate that nearly half of all compromises in Europe occur at e-commerce Web sites. If merchants have any doubts about the security of their card details they will switch to a competing provider who has been validated compliant. Working with a PCI DSS-compliant hosting provider can significantly help merchants in their own PCI DSS compliance validation efforts."

Alexandra Schless, managing director TelecityGroup Netherlands: "As business is increasingly conducted online it is important to safeguard company-sensitive systems and environments. By validating compliance with the PCI DSS, we are making it easier for our merchants to become PCI DSS compliant."
