NCB Jamaica_logoATLANTA, Nov. 19, 2015 -  ControlScan, a security, compliance and risk management partner to hundreds of merchant service providers representing millions of small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited (NCB), Jamaica’s oldest and most profitable financial group. The new partnership executes ControlScan PCI 1-2-3, a comprehensive program for compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

ControlScan research confirms that SMBs are becoming more aware of and committed to the PCI compliance process; however, they aren’t always able to effectively interpret and respond to PCI’s various requirements. PCI 1-2-3 provides the support SMBs need to implement the security controls that truly make a difference between being secure and compliant versus becoming the latest data breach victim.

Under their new partnership, ControlScan and NCB will deliver the following:

  • A PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) that includes step-by-step instructions;
  • A thorough scan of the merchant’s network, if applicable; and
  • Reporting and attestation that the merchant is compliant.

 “National Commercial Bank is an ideal ControlScan partner because the organization strives to reduce risk and continue building trust and loyalty among its customer base,” said Joan Herbig, CEO of ControlScan. “The PCI 1-2-3 program will give NCB and their customers the tools they need to accomplish those goals.”

"National Commercial Bank is pleased to partner with ControlScan to provide compliance solutions to our merchants and partners. Our partnership with ControlScan will provide additional tools that will simplify and guide our merchants through the compliance process. The aim is to ensure that our customers operate in a risk free environment whilst ensuring that they comply with worldwide payment standard requirements,” said Septimus Blake, senior general manager of the NCB Treasury and Correspondent Banking Division.

PCI 1-2-3 is part of a growing number of solutions offered by ControlScan to help SMBs secure sensitive data and comply with information security and privacy standards. For more information visit or call 800-825-3301.
