DUBAI, May 13, 2018

Dubai-based telco du’s payment channels are now Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DDS) accredited, providing innovative digitalised services that create secure e-commerce environments for its customers.

The payment channels comprise du stores, Payment Gateway, IVR, voice calls, du mobile app, myaccount.du.ae, WiFi UAE and du Dealer Sales Portal.

The move will offer highly secure credit cards and debit cards belonging to the 5 major card issuers: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB and Discover.

Fahad Al Hassawi, deputy chief executive officer, Telco Services, EITC said: “With the rapid proliferation of e-commerce and a more digitalised world, it is imperative that electronic transactions are secure. The PCI-DSS accreditation bears testament to du’s commitment to adhering to the highest standards of transparency and integrity at all times and across all its operations , thus, paving for the UAE to become a forerunner in the provision of simple and secure electronic payments.

“PCI-DSS Compliance means that our customers can conveniently make electronic payments through various channels with complete peace of mind – knowing that their data is fully secure and tamper-proof.”

du is one of the few companies in the lead which has obtained PCI DSS compliance certification in the UAE for all its payment channels as well as data centre hosting services in Dubai  & , Abu Dhabi. With this latest compliance, du customer’s cardholder data is protected from theft and misuse when used on the du payment channels.

Furthermore, du has systems and processes in place to respond to any cardholder data breaches that limit the extent of theft and misuse of cardholder data. As such, PCI DSS compliance requires mandatory activities to be undertaken by du staff on regular basis, and requires certification every year. – TradeArabia News Service
