du now PCI-DSS certified telecom operator

In News

UAE’s leading telecom operator, du, became the first telecom operator in the Middle East to achieve PCI-DSS certification, a set of security standards designed to ensure secure environment for online payment transactions.

Fahad Al Hassawi, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Telco Services, EITC said “With the rapid proliferation of e-commerce and a more digitalised world, it is imperative that electronic transactions are secure. The PCI-DSS accreditation bears testament to du’s commitment to adhering to the highest standards of transparency and integrity at all times and across all its operations , thus, paving for the UAE to become a forerunner in the provision of simple and secure electronic payments. PCI-DSS Compliance means that our customers can conveniently make electronic payments through various channels with complete peace of mind – knowing that their data is fully secure and tamper-proof.”

With this latest compliance, du customer’s cardholder data is protected from theft and misuse when used on the du payment channels. Furthermore, du has systems and processes in place to respond to any cardholder data breaches that limit the extent of theft and misuse of cardholder data. As such, PCI DSS compliance requires mandatory activities to be undertaken by du staff on regular basis, and requires certification every year.
