PCI PIN Security Audit
What’s the Deal with PCI Compliance?
Since 2012, Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance has been strictly enforced. Any entity that accepts and processes Visa, Plus or Interlink PINs is subject to these PCI security standards. Specifically, any financial institution that is a Plus member, with at least one ATM, is likely to receive a mandate from its processor or sponsoring bank asking for an annual PCI PIN Security Audit.
These detailed PCI compliance requirements are aimed at safeguarding consumer PIN and cryptographic systems used to protect the Visa payment systems. The PCI security standards include a comprehensive list of control objectives that cover over 30 questions or requirements on PIN security and the encryption keys that protect the PIN.
