First Colo receives PCI-DSS certification
Frankfurt, 16.01.2020: Since October 2019, First Colo holds the globally recognized PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) certification. The PCI-DSS certification guarantees security standards, which are legally required for the processing and storage of credit card data. The PCI-DSS security standard is designed to protect online merchants and end customers from fraudulent attacks, credit card misuse and theft in payment transactions.
Criteria for the PCI-DSS certification
In order to obtain the certification, strict security standards must be upheld. Protection of online merchants and end customers always has the highest priority. Fraudulent attacks are not uncommon for card transactions in the financial sector – which makes it all the more important to have an IT infrastructure that meets even the highest security standards. This is the only way to ensure appropriate and responsible processing of credit transfers.
As a certified PCI-DSS IT service provider, First Colo easily supports clients from the financial sector in setting up and operating an IT infrastructure that can process transactions in accordance to legal regulations.
