Hamden, CT, June 09, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- New Haven Cash Register Company, Inc., a leading reseller of point of sale (POS) and related security solutions, today announced that Marketing Manager Bill Pankracij has completed the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) PCIwise Certificate Program for Technology Providers. The program was developed by the RSPA to ensure that association members have a complete understanding of best practices related to Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security practices.
To obtain the PCIwise certification, a candidate must demonstrate basic knowledge in many areas of the payment processing ecosystem, including:
•PCI security regulations
•PCI compliant systems technology and topology
•Installing a PCI compliant POS/payment processing system & environment
•Administering, maintaining and supporting a PCI compliant POS system & environment
The increase of security breaches both in frequency and severity has led to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS. PCI DSS is a set of requirements designed to ensure that all companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.
PCIwise certification offers assurances to the retail and restaurant communities, including those who use POS products and related professional services that they are working with a company that is knowledgeable and up-to-date with current security practices.
“With the rapid escalation of new and more advanced malware and breach attacks, it’s important that companies remain up-to-date on the latest threats as well as regulatory compliance mandates to ensure secure environments,” said Arthur Rosenbaum, CEO of New Haven Cash Register Company. “Our understanding of PCI-related rules and regulations allows us to provide additional value to our customers as well as serving as a trusted advisor for all their POS, credit card processing, loyalty program and related needs.”
