Foregenix aim to help travel agents meet IATA accreditation deadline

Travel agents are in a  race against time to meet IATA’s deadline for PCI DSS compliance. They've been given the deadline of March 2018 to become PCI compliant, which is by no means an easy task.  In a bid to help them on their way, we are offering a helping hand with a unique service that simplifies and supports their PCI compliance and ongoing cyber security health. 

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) aims to reduce credit card fraud through the implementation of a global standard to help organisations protect credit card data. PCI DSS has strict guidelines on protecting cardholder data, from processing to transmission to storage.

The service, which launches today, includes a portal with self-validation through an easy-to-use, ‘wizard based’ PCI self-assessment service. This comes alongside our software solution Serengeti Lite – an end point compliance and cyber health monitoring solution; fully supported by our compliance specialists. It also includes travel-specific policy documentation templates and a guide to demystify the jargon that comes with the standard.

Supported by our team of cyber security specialists, additional options include direct access to one of the world’s leading PCI assessor teams and software to locate unsecured credit card numbers (and other personally identifiable information) to help ensure that they are not left in vulnerable locations and exposed to would be fraudsters.

The service is the work of Foregenix and our partner company ControlScan, specialists in cyber security solutions for payment security and PCI DSS, which work with many travel companies across the globe.

Our travel industry and compliance specialist Richard Jones comments: “The industry is served by many thousands of travel agents, the majority of whom are facing the PCI DSS challenge for the first time under the IATA mandate. 

“Like many other SMEs they need extra help to get them across the line, so they can operate in compliance with this global standard. We believe we offer a unique combination of experience and travel industry knowledge to make the task both pain free and cost effective.”
