Notes to Editors:
PCI-PAL is a Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard Level 1 certified supplier of contact centre payment solutions and services enabling organisations to take customer payments securely, to store customer data safely, in particular credit card data, and to de-risk their business from the threat of data loss and cybercrime.
PCI-PAL solutions are currently used in more than 60 organisations, many of which are global businesses in the retail, services, and utilities sectors, utilising PCI-PAL technology to ensure they meet industry rules and regulations governing customer data protection.
In May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulations come into force across the EU. Material data breaches can now lead to fines of up to 4% of an offending organisation's worldwide turnover. This, together with the PCI regulations, means that all organisations who take contact centre payments need to carefully monitor and control their PCI and data compliance.
PCI-PAL PLC and its predecessor has been on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange since September 2000.
