Scheidt & Bachmann has again received certification for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The certificate, which corresponds to the current PCI-DSS version 3.2, reflects the company's high security standards.

The certification for the data centres of Scheidt & Bachmann in Mönchengladbach and Düsseldorf (Germany) as well as Boston and Indianapolis (USA) corresponds to the highest requirement level according to PCI-DSS and was granted for the sixth time in a row without objections. The company thus continues to meet the strict security requirements of the credit card industry.

“As a leading supplier of ticketing systems for public transport, we are hosting more and more back office systems for our customers. We are proud that we offer our customers highest security and reliability in accordance with the strict PCI-DSS standard,” says Dirk Holzwarth, Head of IT Service Management of Scheidt & Bachmann.

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a security standard used by the credit card industry. The standard meets the security requirements of all major credit card companies. Today, the standard is recognised around the world and aims to minimise fraud and ensure credit card data security.
