expressPay, one of the Ghanaian payment services has obtained two information security standards certificates, specifically, ISO27001:2013 and PCI-DSS Level 1. These certificates are international standards that provide the specification for an information security management system.
The ISO27001:2013, especially, is designed to help organisations manage their information security processes in line with international best practice. The PCI-DSS ensures that companies that process, store or transmit card data keep their security high.
expressPay’s Chief Technology Officer, Nii Tetteh said they will “continue to provide the highest level of security to enable our customers to effect their transactions safely and securely. We follow world-class best practices in the two standards and ensure the standards are adhered to by our staff.”
He added: “It is our commitment to security and best practices that have brought us this far. The technology that we develop is always user-friendly and secure.”
The CEO, Curtis Vanderpuije added that expressPay will be looking to implement other standards that will ensure that the company remains a leader in the financial tech world in the country.
