London-based fraud prevention and payment processing company Retail Decisions (ReD), has joined the PCI Security Standards Council as a Participating Organization. As a Participating Organization, ReD said it will work with the council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards. “These standards are vital, and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to shape their future direction,” said Carl Clump, CEO of ReD. “Every online business, from the largest corporation to the smallest internet store, has to be PCI compliant before they can safely accept card payments so that consumers can be confident their personal information won’t be stolen. “Being on the council means that ReD will not only have an influential voice on where the PCI Security Council should go in the future, but also have an invaluable insider’s view of where it is heading—and so be able to prepare well in advance.”
