In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entitys best protection against network security threats and data breaches, said Bob Russo, General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council. By joining as a Participating Organization, SafenSoft demonstrates they are playing an active part in mitigating the threats and improving the security of the payment chain globally by driving the security standards to higher levels of adoption and strength.
