We've got something exciting to share with you...
We have successfully completed our assessment by PGI against the payment card industry data security standard (PCI)!
This certification is widely recognised across the payment industry and will have such a positive contribution to the future of Kinetic.
But what exactly does it mean?
Being PCI certified sets the requirements for us to safely and securely process and transmit cardholder data during transactions to prevent fraud, theft and data beaches. The standards were formed in 2004 by Visa, MasterCard, Discover Financial Services, JCB International and American Express. The PCI certification is considered the best way to safeguard sensitive data and information, helping us to reassure our customers and protect their data.
The certification supports the services which include the provision of cloud-based infrastructure (KxHosting and KxPayments) to support web card payment processing which are redirected to separate payment service providers.

“Our customers deserve trust, privacy and security. Passing the PCI accreditation was another way of demonstrating our commitment to helping our customers streamline compliance and keeping their data safe and secure."
