Homeshop18 Becomes One Of The Few Etailers To Have A PCI DSS Certification

HomeShop18, India's leading virtual retailer, has recently achieved Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification for its operations across TV, web and mobile retail platforms.

New Delhi, Delhi, January 23, 2014 /India PRwire/ -- HomeShop18, India's leading virtual retailer, has recently achieved Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification for its operations across TV, web and mobile retail platforms. With HomeShop18, customers can now be at complete ease while using plastic money such as debit or credit cards to make transactions. The PCI DSS compliance ensures that companies that process, store or transmit credit or debit card information maintain a secure environment. Following a strict and rigorous audit process, HomeShop18 is one of the very few players in the e commerce industry to offer this security to its customers across its integrated TV, web and online platforms. PCI DSS standard is to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce security breaches and credit card fraud.

Commenting on the certification, Mr. Sundeep Malhotra, Founder and CEO HomeShop18 said "The successful completion of PCI DSS certification shows that HomeShop18 takes the security of its customer data very seriously. We are strongly committed to protecting customer information through stringent compliance initiatives such as this."

Mr. Malhotra added, "HomeShop18 is committed to provide a safe shopping environment and experience to all its valued customers and will continue to value add in this space."

The PCI Data Security Standard represents a common set of industry tools and measurements to help ensure the safe handling of sensitive information. The standard provides an actionable framework for developing a robust account data security process - including preventing, detecting and reacting to security incidents.
