Sysnet, WorldPay Partner for PCI Compliance

April 17, 2012

Sysnet Global Solutions, a Dublin-based compliance services company, has entered into an agreement with payments processor WorldPay to provide PCI DSS compliance validation services to WorldPay’s U.S.-based merchants. The companies are working together to provide a compliance solution that includes a tailored communication program designed to encourage merchant engagement with the compliance process.

“One of the greatest ‘invisible’ points of vulnerability—particularly for small business owners—is in credit card number theft,” says Patti Newcomer, chief marketing officer for WorldPay US. “They often feel that their size makes it not worth a hacker’s time when, the fact is, that’s who hackers successfully target most frequently.”

The solution incorporates an online self-assessment questionnaire to identify areas where WorldPay clients may fall short of minimum PCI requirements. They also receive scheduled scans of their website, e-commerce applications and IP addresses to identify potential points that could be compromised or hacked, along with easy-to-follow instructions to remedy deficiencies.
