KAL works with PCI Security Standards Council to help set payment card data protection standards

Edinburgh, UK, August 26th, 2009 - KAL, world leaders in ATM software, has recently joined the PCI Security Standards Council as a Participating Organization to work with the Council on evolving the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards.

The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to information security controls and processes that ensure data integrity. More information on the council and the standard can be found at www.pcisecuritystandards.org

As a Participating Organization, KAL has access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, and can provide feedback on the standards and become part of the growing community that now supports PCI SSC. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entity’s best protection against data criminals. As a Participating Organization, KAL, can add its voice to the process.

The PCI Security Standards Council is committed to helping everyone involved in the payment chain protect consumer payment data,” said Bob Russo, General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council. “By participating in the standards setting process, KAL demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.”
