Purchasing Card Industry Data Security Standards - PCI DSS
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was developed in response to member, merchant and service provider feedback regarding the need for a standard best practice information security approach to safeguarding sensitive data and a unified method to achieve compliance to the various card scheme standards.
Here at Newcastle University we take data security extremely seriously and understand the need to adhere to the strictest levels of checking and auditing around storing and transferring cardholder data.
As part of the global PCI DSS we are working closely with our partner WPM Education to provide our customers with a secure payment network. WPM Education are audited annually by a PCI Standards Council approved Qualified Security Assessor.
