OREM, Utah, July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Lack of compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) leaves IATA agents open to data theft, cyber hacking, and fraud. Compliance with the PCI DSS in the form of a completed Attestation of Compliance brings greater security, protection, and peace of mind for agents. This is why leading travel commerce platform, Travelport, has partnered with SecurityMetrics, a global leader in data security and PCI compliance, to help agents achieve proof of PCI DSS compliance at preferential rates.
The online wizard tool for PCI compliance from the SecurityMetrics PCI Customer Portal is a quick and easy option for Travelport-connected agents to get started and complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) on their payment processing environment. Merchants and agents can then show proof of compliance through the completion of an Attestation of Compliance.
Alexandra Fitzpatrick, VP Travelport Global Payment Solutions, commented: "The ability to demonstrate proof of PCI DSS compliance is key for agencies to be seen as trusted partners to their customers. The PCI DSS certification program in partnership with SecurityMetrics is a simple way for our customers' businesses to operate within a compliant environment and adhere to regulations."
