Share Article

SafenSoft, a developer of innovative transaction-processing security software, announced today that it has joined the PCI Security Standards Council as a new participating organization. As a Participating Organization, SafenSoft will work with the Council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards.

"We have seen at first hand the damage that can be done to organizations that don’t pay sufficient attention to information security issues and look forward to helping make the process as manageable as possible.” - Michael Kalinichenko, CEO

The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to information security controls and processes that ensure data integrity. More information on the council and the standard can be found at

As a Participating Organization, SafenSoft will now have access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, be able to provide feedback on the standards and become part of a growing community that now includes more than 600 organizations. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entity’s best protection against data criminals. By joining as a Participating Organization, SafenSoft is adding its voice to the process.

“The PCI Security Standards Council is committed to helping everyone involved in the payment chain protect consumer payment data,” said Bob Russo, General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council. “By participating in the standards setting process, SafenSoft demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.”
