Etech to participate in key standards setting body protecting payment cardholder data
Nacogdoches, Texas United States May 30, 2008 Etech a leading provider of inbound and outbound sales and service and well as chat and business process solutions announced today that it has joined the PCI Security Standards Council as a new participating organization. As a Participating Organization, Etech will work with the Council to evolve 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, Etech will now have access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, be able to provide feedback on the standards and become part of a growing community that now includes more than 450 organizations. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entity’s best protection against data criminals. By joining as a Participating Organization, Etech is adding 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, Etech demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.”
