Next to reputational risk, loss of highly confidential card data results in massive financial implications. To secure the card business the leading payment card organizations founded the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
As a pioneer in security related topics EVO has been a member of the council right from the start. The council established the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) applicable to all parties involved in the card payment process. Although PCI DSS became obligatory not until September 2007, the EVO platform has been PCI certified since 2004, constituting the first European acquiring platform seamlessly certified since then.
