BI.ZONE Security Operations Centre Awarded PCI DSS Certification
5 November 2020, Moscow — BI.ZONE had its Security Operations Centre (SOC) certified to the international Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard — PCI DSS v3. The audit has been conducted by Card Security, the first CPSA in the world.
‘Information systems that are subject to PCI DSS are the most critical to the customers: they store, process and transmit bank card transaction data. Such systems are of particular interest to threat actors and therefore security monitoring of these systems should be a priority. This certificate enables us to extend the range of services for organisations operating in the financial sector. Thus, we can help our customers meet the PCI DSS requirements when undergoing compliance audits, namely those related to monitoring and incident response’, commented Muslim Medzhlumov, Head of Managed Security Services, BI.ZONE.
BI.ZONE SOC services are designed to detect early signs of cyberattacks and provide a prompt response to security incidents. They apply the best event management tools available on the market, which are integrated into a proprietary cybersecurity orchestration platform. This spring, BI.ZONE SOC became one of the first commercial centres in Russia to monitor and respond to cyberthreats, whose services are certified by BSI to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO/IEC 27001:2013.
In 2019, BI.ZONE became the official distributor of PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (PCI ASV) service from the PCI Security Standards Council. This enabled BI.ZONE to perform IT infrastructure vulnerability scanning services of financial organisations in accordance with the requirements of the international PCI DSS standard.
‘We would like to highlight the professional excellence and in-depth technical expertise of our colleagues at BI.ZONE. In the course of the project, they came up with and successfully implemented, under our supervision, some out-of-the-box solutions that allow us to approach our tasks in a more flexible and effective way. Our team has been providing PCI DSS services since 2008, but nonetheless, we could learn a lot working side by side with BI.ZONE’, remarked Alexander Ivanov, Chief Operating Officer, Card Security.
