Crosskey achieves PCI DSS compliance

Crosskey raises the safety bar for Card and Mobile Payments.

Crosskey has now achieved compliance with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) – the most rigorous industry-recognized payment-card security standard available globally. The compliance assessment was done by Verizon.

PCI DSS is the payment card industry security requirement for entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data, and has been endorsed by all the major card brands – Visa Inc., MasterCard Worldwide, Discover Network, American Express and JCB.

–       Crosskey is now one of two PCI DSS certified payment card service providers in Finland and one of only a few in the Nordic countries. This fact speaks for itself and Crosskey has all the reasons to be proud of this achievement, says Managing Director Thomas Lundberg.

Achieving this level of PCI Compliance means that Crosskeys customers can be confident that Crosskey adheres to strict security standards, which include maintaining the proper security policies, procedures, and regulations to reduce payment card theft and fraud

–       Our existing customers can rely on us being a trustworthy and secure service provider. We have the tools, the know-how and the commitment within Crosskey and now we have the certification that proves that we can “walk the talk” says, Director of Card and Mobile Payments Monika Liikamaa.

Crosskey now complies with the stringent PCI DSS requirements for security management, policies and procedures to safeguard and protect their customers’ sensitive data. 

–       This is what the market will expect from us in the future and I am very happy that Crosskey have achieved this level of security maturity in order to achieve PCI DSS compliance. It shows that we take security seriously and that our systems, processes and policies adhere to the stringent standard set forth by the payment brands, says Chief Security Officer Kim Halavakoski.
