BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -- Comdata Corp., provider of the new Smart Solutions suite of point-of-sale systems for travel plazas and convenience stores, is supporting the PCI Security Standards Council as a participating organization. The company is working with the Council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards, the company reported.
"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, Comdata demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal."
The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers storing, processing or transmitting 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, Comdata has access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, is able to provide feedback on the standards, and is part of a growing community that includes more than 500 organizations.
"Data protection is critical to Comdata, and we are honored to be an active participant in shaping the standards that will ensure safe business practices," said Joseph Daly, executive vice president of operations for Comdata. "The PCI Security Standards Council is a driving force for payment policy, and they share our commitment to providing the highest standards of data security for our customers."
