Cairo, Egypt (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
ControlCase, a leading provider of Compliance, Information Security and Risk Management Solutions, is pleased to announce that it has certified National Bank of Egypt (NBE) for Level 1 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Certification. ControlCase was engaged by NBE as the official Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) to provide Certification and Professional Services required to achieve Compliance with PCI DSS Version 2.0.
PCI DSS is a global security standard that helps to prevent card and data fraud by evaluating payment account data security and assessing an organization’s network architecture, software design, security policies, procedures and protective practices.
The environment was complex, working on systems ranging from legacy to the most modern. There were multi authorizing and issuance systems with several supporting applications and a huge network of branches, ATMs and POS all over Egypt. NBE received the certificate following a successful audit earlier this year. This achievement proves ControlCase capability to undertake any complex environment and satisfy customer expectations without compromising compliance requirements.
“Attaining PCI DSS Certification is not a destination achieved, but the start of the journey to show commitment of NBE towards regulation and security for the future,” says Afy Merchant Vice President, International Sales and Delivery, ControlCase.
“Maintaining and Retaining the PCI DSS certification is of utmost importance for the future as new vulnerabilities and threats are knocking at the door every day.” ControlCase enjoys a continued support and partnership with organizations globally in the journey towards compliance.
“National Bank of Egypt offers innovative products and services to its Customers, supported by state-of-art technology. We are committed to providing piece of mind and convenience through compliance with world class security standards,” says Mr. Ihab Elwazan, Chief Information Officer, Information Technology Division, NBE.
“We will continue in our commitment towards security and making compliance business as usual.”
With extensive experience as a QSA and industry leading software and services, ControlCase also assisted NBE to conduct a scope minimization activity to focus on where sensitive data resides and was able to support and assist NBE throughout their PCI DSS program.
