Deutsche Card Services acquiring platform meets PCI DSS requirements for the eighth time in a row

Cologne, (PresseBox) - Deutsche Card Services is the first European acquiring platform to receive the PCI Security Certificate eight times in a row. Once again, this certificate confirms that the Deutsche Bank subsidiary ensures the best possible protection against any misuse of sensitive data. The successful certification proves that the security is in line with the strict requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which is the benchmark for all organisations that process, store or transmit card information – including merchants.

The PCI Security Standards Council, which developed the standard, was founded as an open, international forum by leading credit card companies. Today, its task is to develop and update the PCI security standards, to administrate them, to explain them and to increase awareness of them. All five founding members agreed to integrate the PCI DSS standard as a technical requirement into their data security conformity programmes.

“Reliability and a sense of responsibility are key characteristics of Deutsche Bank Group. Compliance with the PCI security standards is an obvious consequence of this approach. It is no coincidence that our acquiring platform was the first in Europe to receive a PCI Security Certificate,” says Jens Mahlke, Chairman of the Management Board of Deutsche Card Services.

The PCI certification examinations at Deutsche Card Services were conducted by SRC Security Research & Consulting. The company is the joint centre of competence and consulting company for security relevant applications and technologies of the four German publishers for the credit industry, Bank-Verlag, Deutscher Genossenschafts-Verlag, Deutscher Sparkassen-Verlag and VÖB-ZVD Bank für Zahlungsverkehrsdienstleistungen.
