Over the last year, we have grown in our technical and security awareness, knowledge and capabilities; and we continue to devote significant effort and resources to maintaining our commitment to security and compliance with international standards and best practice.”

SISA Information Security Worldwide’s CEO and founder, Dharshan Shanthamurthy said, “Maintaining the safety of data and banking systems should be a top priority for processing and service provider companies. We are glad to know that NEC Payments holds the same belief and is working hard towards continuous security.” – TradeArabia News Service
