JENSEN BEACH, Fla.--(CSR, the preeminent global provider of award-winning data compliance solutions and expert business services that turn compliance into revenue, today announced that OMEGA Processing Solutions will offer CSR’s patented PCI ToolKit™ and the patent-pending CSR Breach Reporting ToolKit™ solutions to its entire portfolio of approximately 7,000 business customers. Chosen as one of 2012’s fastest-growing private companies in America by Inc. magazine, OMEGA Processing Solutions is an innovative and award-winning credit card processing company that provides electronic payment transaction services to businesses nationwide.)--
“This partnership enables us to continue providing best-in-class solutions that make PCI compliance easier, as well as a method for our merchants to address data breach responsibilities to properly observe state and federal laws and other regulations.”
CSR’s patented PCI ToolKit solution takes the headache and hassle out of complying with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for card-accepting merchants. The PCI DSS is a set of information security requirements that entities who store, process or transmit cardholder data must meet. It is endorsed by all the major card brands: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and JCB. The PCI ToolKit’s patented process helps merchants complete compliance validation quickly and easily without time-consuming support sessions. More than 82 percent of merchants who use the PCI ToolKit successfully complete validation.
The patent-pending CSR Breach Reporting ToolKit solution delivers the right information at the right time to the right regulating bodies in the event of a suspected or actual data breach. Breach reporting is complex and not an easy task. Regulations vary state-to-state, and where federal law applies, it preempts what individual states require. The card brands, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, as well as other pertinent national and international governing bodies also have reporting requirements. The CSR Breach Reporting Toolkit, the only national service of its kind, identifies, prepares and files the mandated reports to countless oversight authorities in a timely fashion on behalf of businesses, both large and small.
After a thorough review and vetting of several PCI compliance services, OMEGA Processing Solutions chose CSR’s PCI ToolKit for merchant ease-of-use, reliability and the robustness of the CSR service model. The unique CSR Breach Reporting ToolKit will help OMEGA Processing Solution’s merchants tackle the important, but complicated steps of properly reporting data loss in an effort to avoid or reduce the consequences of noncompliance which can include greater regulatory scrutiny, as well as financial, civil and even criminal penalties for negligence.
“Compliance rates are important to us and we recognize that is where the payments industry is headed. In this age of noncompliance fees, we feel we are doing the right thing by our merchants to provide everything we can to help them avoid penalties and achieve compliance,” said Scott Anderson, chief executive officer for OMEGA Processing Solutions. “This partnership enables us to continue providing best-in-class solutions that make PCI compliance easier, as well as a method for our merchants to address data breach responsibilities to properly observe state and federal laws and other regulations.”
“OMEGA Processing Solutions embraces the importance of compliance wholeheartedly by training agents and customer service teams thoroughly,” says Darrel Anderson, CSR executive vice president, sales and client solutions. “We’re honored to meet their compliance needs and look forward to helping them, and consequently their merchants, successfully and affordably achieve higher rates of compliance.”
