Infotel Solutions has gained the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Set up to ensure companies who work with credit cards do so securely, the standard focuses on the credit card transaction process and is administered and managed by an independent body of major payment cards, including Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
Kimberley Graham, Operations Director at Infotel Solutions, said:
"Following PCI security standards is good business and one of our objectives this year was to gain the standard of PCI compliance. It was important for us to be able to offer this extra level of reassurance for our clients who put their trust in our services, whether that's Infotel, Findmeahotelroom or Findmeaconference. I believe our member hotels and venues will also benefit from this added data security which can only encourage more guests and delegates through their doors. I'm delighted, although not surprised, that today, our booking portals have passed with a top score of A in the Qualys SSL checker. This means clients who use our portals instead of calling our travel and accommodation teams can have complete confidence in our processes, knowing all security standards are adhered to regardless of booking methods."
Robert English, Senior Developer at Infotel Solutions continues:
"The way we accept, process, store and transmit credit card information is done in a secure environment which our clients can continue to trust and rely on. They can also rest assured that we have robust systems in place to guarantee a fast response should any potential data risks or threats arise. Through implementing all the requirements of the PCI standard we have made it much more difficult for an attacker to gain access to data."
"What is safe today is not necessarily safe tomorrow so our teams will continue to operate best practices in remaining PCI compliant in delivering our services and surpassing clients' expectations."
