Schellman & Company, LLC has become a Qualified PIN Assessor (QPA) for the PCI PIN Security Program. PCI PIN, one of the subsidiary standards part of the PCI PIN Transaction Security (PTS) group of standards, covers the safeguards for protecting online and offline PIN transactions in attended and unattended point of sale or for automated teller machine scenarios. The new QPA program moves assessors under the PCI Security Standards Council’s remit from the payment card brands, although the standards, control objectives, and payment card brand direction remain largely the same.
The PIN Security Requirements complement Schellman’s existing PCI services, especially PCI DSS and PCI P2PE, and give clients who handle ATM processing or other PIN data flows the opportunity to consolidate their various audits under a single firm with deep expertise and rigorous quality standards.
