Dayton, OH (May 21, 2014) – Boost Engagement, full-service online rewards and recognition company, announced today that its operation is certified as Level 1 PCI DSS compliant. The organization recently underwent a stringent audit by an independent Quality Security Assessor (QSA) to ensure that it meets industry best practices and security controls required to keep credit card data and other sensitive information safe and secure during transmission, processing and storage.
“We’re beyond excited to add PCI DSS certification to our merchant and call center operations portfolio,” says Anita Emoff, Boost Engagement President. “Organizations exposed to credit card and data risk often tell us their providers say they are ‘compliant’, however, we advise them to be careful and ask for their providers PCI Certificate – we are one of only a few to be certified in our industry. Clients can count on our team to capture credit card information in a secure and efficient manner. We have always strived to be as compliant as possible, but it’s imperative to have this Certification to ensure the best protection for our customers’ data.”
The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is the most rigorous industry-recognized payment-card security standard available globally. The PCI DSS Security Standard is designed to minimize the exposure of credit card data to risk of fraud or compromise. This PCI standard is more commonly associated with merchant activities; however, call centers that capture sensitive data must also follow stringent security protocols before their operations can be deemed safe for capturing consumer information.
