TNS Smart Network (TNS), Canada's largest privately owned transaction processor, is pleased to announce that it has renewed its yearly compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).
In conjunction with its PCI audit, TNS successfully renewed its compliance in Canada and the United States under Visa's Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) and MasterCard's Site Data Protection Program (SDP).
To achieve compliance with Visa USA, Visa Canada, MasterCard, and all other required parties, TNS undergoes the most stringent service provider assessment category, being the Level 1 Service Provider category reserved for Payment Card processors and gateways. TNS must successfully undergo a yearly renewal in order to continue to provide its ISO partners with the opportunity to service international visitors using their Visa PLUS cards through its ATM network.
"TNS' ongoing PCI compliance under Level 1 requirements just reinforces our commitment to ensuring the safety of all cardholder transactions at ATMs connecting through TNS Smart Network", stated Mischa Weisz, President & CEO of the TNS Group of Companies. "It is worth all of the security systems, policies and procedures that we have put in place for the benefit of our customers."
