SISA has awarded Cargills Bank, one of the topmost commercial banks in Sri Lanka, with a globally esteemed Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) v3.2.1 certificate to secure their customers’ sensitive authentication data.
PCI DSS is a set of stringent standards, mandated by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
