Bandar Seri Begawan, 6 November 2015 – Baiduri Bank showed its commitment to the highest data security standard when they received the PCI-DSS Version 3.1 Certification from ControlCase.

Baiduri Bank achieved a milestone in December last year when it was the first and only bank to be awarded PCI-DSS Version 2.0. With this new certification, Baiduri Bank still remains the only bank in Brunei to be PCI-DSS compliant.

ControlCase, a global provider of Compliance, Information Security and Risk Management Solutions, assessed Baiduri Bank to be in compliance with requirements of PCI-DSS Version 3.1 on 30 September 2015. ControlCase was engaged by Baiduri as the Quality Security Assessor (QSA) to provide Certification and Professional Services required to achieve Compliance with PCI-DSS Version 3.1.

The PCI Data Security Standard is used by all major card brands as the common security standard for their compliance programmes. Version 3.1, the latest and most up to date standard was released in April 2015. Speaking on this achievement, Mr. Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank said, "Receiving this certification of the latest standard demonstrates our commitment to data security. This certification further reassures our customers and stakeholders that we take their privacy and data security very seriously."

Mr. Sim Kiem Lee, Chief Technology Officer of Baiduri Bank, added "In keeping up with the highest industry standard, providing a secure environment for the data that we manage is of the utmost importance. The new PCI-DSS Version 3.1 is even more stringent than Version 2.0 and our teams have worked very hard over the last few months to meet all the requirements."

The standard has been endorsed by major card brands (Visa Inc, MasterCard Worldwide, Discover Network, American Express and JCB) to safeguard customer information and mandates that merchants and service providers meet and maintain stringent security standards when they process and transmit cardholder data.

ControlCase LLC is a US-based company headquartered in Reston, Virginia with locations in North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East.
