To provide merchants with a risk management program that includes merchant training, on-going communication and the individual attention each of our merchants deserves
RBS WorldPay has partnered with Arsenal Security Group, for a Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance program. This program is designed to assist RBS WorldPay merchants to comply with PCI standards and avoid the loss or exposure of cardholder data.
Reportedly, the Arsenal Security group will provide SmartSearch Technology, which can identify if a merchant is improperly storing cardholder data, determine if they are using a PCI compliant payment application and check for vendor default passwords. It has added that they also offer remediation support for merchants who are non-compliant in a quick and efficient manner.
The card associations require that any merchant that accepts electronic payments adhere to the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Any merchant that stores, processes or transmits cardholder data must complete a self-assessment questionnaire or have an on-site assessment conducted by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). The company said that with Arsenal’s program, RBS WorldPay merchants may submit their self-assessment questionnaire and conduct their mandatory vulnerability scans directly through the Arsenal portal.
LeAnn Brown, vice president and head of PCI Merchant Compliance for RBS WorldPay, said: “Our approach to security and PCI DSS is to help protect our merchants, provide access to the best technology, and truly be our merchants advocate. We are convinced that Arsenal Security Group can provide our merchants with a dedicated risk management program that includes merchant training, on-going communication and the individual attention each of our merchants deserves.”
