During recent years in the United States and Worldwide, online crime and identity theft have become the fastest growing crime. The industry of electronic payment cards known by its initials in English as PCI (Payment Card Industry) has established a new standard of security called Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
This standard is the result of collaboration between all major credit card brands and the card issuers in the work American Express, Discover Financial, JCB Co., MasterCard Worldwide and Visa International. These companies are collectively known as the PCI Council and have decided to implement a mandatory regulation to all companies that process, store or transmit credit card or any electronic payment method involving these brands.
Advensus has revised every company process including the transmission and storage of credit card information. This revision is to ensure that every process complies with the PCI DSS standards. Advensus is in the process of becoming the first PCI DSS certified call center service provider in the Dominican Republic.
