The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a globally recognised information security standard for organisations that store, process or transmit cardholder information. With the collaboration of five major international credit card companies, the standard was created to improve controls around cardholder data for the purposes of reducing credit card fraud.

As has been seen in a number of high profile cases in New Zealand and around the world, data security breaches are an increasing concern for business in a world where e-commerce is becoming the norm.

The American Chamber of Commerce, in association with Debitsuccess, invites you to come along to this informative event to hear more on what business needs to know about PCI DSS.

This is an ideal event for any business or organization that holds customer / client credit card details and wants to know what they need to do to be compliant with the compulsory PCI DSS compliance requirement being introduced in New Zealand. CFOs, CIO and retailers who are increasingly moving their business online will find it especially useful.
