Why PCI PIN Security Audit & Compliance?

A PCI PIN Audit and Compliance Program ensures that the user’s PIN remains private and secure at the point of transaction.
A personal Identification Number (PIN) points to the vital information required to authenticate a user transaction. Any security flaw at the transaction end can lead to the loss of sensitive information. Additionally, the POS agents/ enterprises will have to face the aftermaths of non-compliance from payment brands. It can seriously affect the credibility of an enterprise, with hefty penalties on the flip side. PCI PIN Security & control implementation help protect PIN information from threats that affect POI and Acquirer/Interchange switches. It addresses challenges like device tampering, lack of equipment controls, usage of non-compliant hardware devices, weak key management practices, visual compromises, ATM/POI malware, PIN logging, weak PIN block controls, and weak test key usage.
Payment brands collectively require PIN program agents/enterprises to conduct on-site PCI PIN Compliance validation. The scope of the security standard extends beyond online transactions towards offline transactions in ATMs/ attended or unattended POS terminals. Therefore, enterprises require periodic reviews of their devices, adhering to PCI PIN requirements. Any devices facing a shortfall in security need to be replaced or patched against the standard.
