GHL Systems Berhad (GHL), the Asia Pacific’s leading end-to-end payment services enabler that deploys world-class payment infrastructure, services and technology has obtained PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliant status, Bernama news agency reported.
GHL’s PCI-DSS certification covers its NETAccess products as well as its data centre’s entire core data network known as N3Net where GHL collects and routes credit card transactions across or between merchants and banks. K.K. Ng, Executive Director at GHL said the company invested RM1 million to upgrade the company’s infrastructure and change operating procedures to ensure GHL’s clients are at highest level of security for their electronic transactions.
The PCI Data Security Standard represents a common set of industry tools and measurements to help ensure the safe handling of sensitive information. Initially created by aligning Visa’s Account Information Security (AIS)/Cardholder Information Security (CISP) programs with MasterCard’s Site Data Protection (SDP) program, the standard provides an actionable framework for developing a robust account data security process – including preventing, detecting and reacting to security incidents.
