Thursday 19 August 2021 14:22 CET | News

Upperlink, a payment solution service provider licenced of the central bank of Nigeria, has secured the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCIDSS) certificate ahead of its payment gateway deployment.

Through Upperlink’s compliance with the rigorous PCI standard, customers using its payment services to route mission-critical applications can be assured that their information security is maintained at the highest level and has been independently validated.

The PCIDSS is a set of industry-mandated requirements for any business that handles, processes, or stores branded cards types from the major card schemes.

The security requirements are maintained by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, which was founded in 2006 by American Express, Discover, JCB International, MasterCard and Visa Inc. The standard applies to any organisation that stores, transmits, or accepts cardholder data.
