Payment card security body appoints UK firms as advisors

Antony Savvas

The body responsible for global payment card security has appointed its first board of advisors, which include Tesco, British Airways and a number of other British organisations.

The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) is an independent industry standards body providing management of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (DSS) on a global basis.

The new board of advisors will represent nearly 200 PCI SSC participating organisations and will provide critical feedback to the ongoing enhancement of security standards, said the Council. 

The 14 advisors were elected by their peers to offer feedback on behalf of financial institutions, merchants, processors, point of sale (POS) suppliers, and industry associations.

The advisors are:

UK payment association APACS
Bank of America
British Airways
Chase Paymentech
First Data Corporation
JP Morgan Chase
Moneris Solutions Corporation
Royal Bank of Scotland
Tesco Stores Ltd.
TSYS Acquiring Solutions
VeriFone Inc
Wal-Mart Stores
Other advisors are expected to be appointed in the coming months to better reflect the needs of other geographic areas, including South America and Asia.
