Bank of Africa has achieved the prestigious PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) certification, underscoring its commitment to the highest levels of data security in payment transactions. The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), founded in 2006 by major payment brands, developed this standard to address security concerns and promote the standardization of security frameworks in the global payment ecosystem.

The PCI DSS standard is the most stringent and demanding in securing monetary transactions, applicable to any organization whose information systems store, transmit, or process cardholder data from major payment brands such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, and Discover. This certification for Bank of Africa demonstrates its compliance with these rigorous international standards, ensuring the protection of its customers’ card data.

In response to the growing security and regulatory challenges, Bank of Africa continuously strengthens its security measures by adopting the highest standards in data protection. This includes meeting the strict requirements set by the PCI DSS, which ensures that all card transactions conducted with Bank of Africa are safeguarded against data breaches and cyber-attacks.

This ongoing commitment reflects the bank’s dedication to staying at the forefront of security practices and data protection. By doing so, Bank of Africa aims to maintain close relationships with its clients and address all their security needs effectively.
