The International Air Transport Association (IATA) now mandates
its accredited travel agencies to conform to the Payment Card
Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This standard is vital for
safeguarding payment data in an increasingly digital age. Learn
more about it here.
Despite the looming threat of hefty fines and penalties, many travel agencies overlook the importance of PCI DSS compliance. Reasons range from lack of awareness or concern to a misunderstanding of the technical complexity involved in meeting the standards.
Recognising these challenges, IATA understands that achieving PCI DSS certification may be a daunting task for travel agencies. However, the implementation of our SOTpay solution can dispel all worries related to PCI DSS compliance, as it ensures no sensitive data enters your work environment.
Our award-winning cloud-based platform, acknowledged by international payment gateways and PCI QSAs, provides several unmatched benefits:
