Nixu Corporation, a European cybersecurity company, strengthens its offerings within PCI and becomes an assessor in the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council’s new 3-D Secure (3DS) program.
The 3DS Assessors are qualified by PCI SSC to perform assessments using the PCI 3DS Core Security Standard.
The PCI 3DS Core Security Standard helps organizations offering 3DS services to align their 3DS compliance with their PCI DSS compliance and provide rigorous security for their entire payment service environment. 3-D Secure is used as an extra authentication to secure web payments when using branded payment cards, issued by for instance Visa and MasterCard.
“We are very pleased that Nixu is now one of the first companies in the world that are approved as PCI 3DS Assessors. Nixu provides advisory and audit services for all entity categories with business within PCI 3-D Secure. We are already one of the strongest PCI auditors and advisors in Northern Europe with the following assessor approvals; PCI QSA, PCI PA-QSA, PCI P2PE and now also PCI 3DS”, comments Björn Sjöholm, Principal Consultant, 3DS Assessor, Nixu Corporation.
