RBS WorldPay partners with Arsenal Security Group for PCI compliance programme

image According to sources, RBS WorldPay and Arsenal Security Group entered into a business partnership for a Payment Card Industry compliance program. The program is designed to assist RBS WorldPay merchants to comply with PCI standards and avoid the loss or exposure of cardholder data.

According to the requirements of the leading Card Associations, any merchant that accepts electronic payments must adhere to the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Any merchant that stores, processes or transmits cardholder data must complete a self-assessment questionnaire or have an on-site assessment conducted by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). Vulnerability scans can also be required each quarter. With Arsenal’s program, RBS WorldPay merchants may submit their self-assessment questionnaire and conduct their mandatory vulnerability scans directly through the Arsenal portal.

LeAnn Brown, vice president and head of PCI Merchant Compliance for RBS WorldPay, said: "We are convinced that Arsenal Security Group can provide our merchants with a dedicated risk management program that includes merchant training, on-going communication and the individual attention each of our merchants deserves."

As well as the questionnaire and vulnerability scans, Arsenal Security Group will provide proprietary SmartSearch(TM)Technology, which can identify if a merchant is improperly storing cardholder data, determine if they are using a PCI compliant payment application and check for vendor default passwords. Besides, merchants who are non-compliant in a quick and efficient manner are offered remediation support.

"We are excited to partner with an organization like RBS WorldPay. As one of the premier payment processors in the US, RBS WorldPay is providing access to easy to use PCI DSS compliance solutions for thousands of merchants. Arsenal’s compliance management technology, automated process and dedicated customer support team underscore the robust and streamlined service RBS WorldPay merchants can expect," said Mark Lippman, founding partner of Arsenal Security Group.
