MasterCard Removes Global Payments from ‘Approved’ List 

May 3, 2012

Fallout from the Global Payments data breach, reported more than a month ago, continued this week as MasterCard confirmed it has removed the payments processor from its list of approved vendors. MasterCard’s move follows that of Visa, which removed Global Payments from its list of PCI-Compliant service providers shortly following disclosure of the April breach.

It’s unclear if any other card brands have made similar decisions regarding Global Payments, but an update Tuesday to the Website the Atlanta-based company established in the wake of the event mentioned that multiple card brands had removed Global Payments from their approved lists. Neither American Express nor Discover have yet to disclose whether they have made similar moves.
