Your certification according to the PCI PIN security standard

The PCI PIN Security Standard formulates requirements for the secure management, processing and transmission of personal identification numbers (PIN) in online and offline transactions at ATMs and payment terminals and is particularly relevant for acquirers and network operators. With the Qualified PIN Assessor (QPA) Program, the PCI Security Standards Council provides a standardized certification for high-quality security assessments according to the PIN Security Standard.

Since October 2019, all PIN security assessments that could previously be performed by a Visa Approved PIN Assessor must be performed by accredited PCI QPAs.
