GCash beefs up user protection with certification from int’l data security standards firm

The leading mobile wallet is now Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard certified

GCash, the country’s leading mobile wallet, recently achieved a compliance certification from the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), assuring every Filipino of the e-wallet’s commitment to the highest quality standards on data security.

PCI-DSS is a standard that is being administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI-SSC) which includes top global credit card brands such as MasterCard, Visa, American Express, JCB International, and Discover Financial Services

The standard ensures that all companies which accept, process, store, or transmit credit/debit cardholder information maintain a secure environment to protect customers. Compliance is validated annually by an external Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) such as ControlCase Inc., a global provider of certification, cybersecurity, and continuous compliance services, which also conducted the assessment of GCash.

“This certification is a testament to our commitment of adhering to only the highest standards in safety and security. This is proof that, at GCash, we take data privacy and cybersecurity very seriously, as it is one of our key pillars in ensuring our customers have the best experience when they use our services. GCash will continue to pursue more global industry best practices to better serve our 71 million customers,” GCash President and CEO Martha Sazon said.

The formal awarding ceremony was held at the GCash headquarters. It was attended by key officials of the company as well executives from Globe Group, the parent firm of Mynt which operates GCash.

The ceremony was also graced by ControlCase president Suresh Dadlani and its head of business development Michelle Mascardo. Also present at the event were project team members from GCash’s Information Security Group, Technology and Operations, along with other business support teams.

As it continues to expand its services and reach more unserved individuals, GCash remains steadfast in boosting the app’s safeguards while continuously strengthening its sense of accountability, ethics, and compliance to further improve customer’s experience and provide them safe, secure, and more convenient digital financial solutions.
