MEPS wins data security certification
Amman, June 30, 2013
Middle East Payment Services (MEPS), a licensed issuer and acquirer of MasterCard cards in Jordan and Palestine, has won the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Compliance Certification and Attestation of Compliance (AoC).
Deputy CEO for Technical and Operations and the primary representative for MEPS on the PCI SSC Board of Advisors, Izdehar Safarini, received the accreditation on behalf of the company.
The accreditation was granted to MEPS in recognition of its strict adherence to guidelines that safeguard consumers’ credit and debit card transactions through added reliability and security measures.
UK-based vulnerability management services provider RandomStorm offered MEPS a comprehensive range of its advanced scanning, monitoring and alerting consultancy services, all of which aided MEPS in completing and receiving the PCI DSS certification.
“We are proud to be playing a part in securing payment card data globally. This achievement is a testament to our ongoing efforts to protect consumer interests and deliver cutting-edge payment services,” said MEPS chairman Dr Abdel Malek Jaber.
Dr Ramzi Al Sunna, director of Randomstorm in the Middle East, said: “We are pleased to have helped MEPS attain this accreditation for the second year in a row. This reaffirms MEPS’ unwavering commitment to delivering secure payment services to customers.” – TradeArabia News Service
