Eckoh leads the way with nine years’ consecutive PCI DSS accreditation

Once again Eckoh receives its Attestation of Compliance (AOC) to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Eckoh plc is pleased to announce that we have once again received our Attestation of Compliance (AOC) to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This will be Eckoh’s ninth consecutive year as a Level One PCI DSS Service Provider, more than any other company in our industry. This renewal ensures that Eckoh remains one of the most consistent and long-standing companies on the Visa Europe list as a Merchant Agent, and Visa Global Registry of Service Providers.

In the face of rising payment fraud as well as increasing regulation such as GDPR and MiFID II, Eckoh continues to deliver consistent compliance for our own operations as well as simple, effective and compliant security solutions to our customers.

In this year’s assessment Eckoh’s Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud footprint was successfully included in the audit and AOC. Whilst Eckoh has extensive infrastructure and capability to provide secure payment solutions in its core markets of the UK and US, the newer AWS platform will facilitate a faster delivery of our solutions into other international markets. This will help organisations around the world benefit from the simplest and most effective PCI DSS compliant, secure payment solution available for contact centre security.

Dave Holliday, Global IT Director at Eckoh said, “Maintaining uninterrupted PCI DSS compliance is a significant achievement, especially over such a long period, and it is entirely thanks to the dedication, diligence and hard work of everyone at Eckoh. It shows that the culture of security, vigilance and compliance is embedded within the organisation and our customers take great reassurance from this.

As well as delivering solutions to help our customers achieve their own PCI DSS compliance, we are the only supplier in our industry who also operate our own compliant contact centre. As a result, we have a unique insight into the challenges the industry is facing and can give specialist advice to ensure the ultimate solution we recommend deals effectively with the customer’s particular situation.”
