Are you accepting or protecting cardholder PIN?
If so, you are likely in-scope for a PIN security assessment.
Merchants, acquiring participants, KIFs, CAs/RAs and other support entities may be responsible for having a PIN security assessment performed. Your acquirer will inform you if you must obtain a certification, which must generally be performed every other year. Whether you’ve been through this process a dozen times, or this is your first year, ControlScan has your back.
PIN assessments address the need to manage devices, encryption keys, and handling of PIN as it moves between the cardholder and the debit and credit networks (STAR, Pulse, NYCE; Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, JCB). Issuers may also choose to certify to PCI PIN to ensure protection of these sensitive data.
