GEOBRIDGE participates and monitors both national and international Standards. Our ongoing involvement in many of these standards organizations give us insight into the business applicability of each solution we provide and manufacturer.

Industry Standards

The following are the standards we follow and adhere to:

EMVCo exists to facilitate worldwide interoperability and acceptance of secure payment transactions.  It accomplishes this by managing and evolving the EMV® Specifications and related testing processes.  This includes, but is not limited to, card and terminal evaluation, security evaluation, and management of interoperability issues.  Today there are EMV® Specifications based on contact chip, contactless chip, EMV® 2nd Generation, Common Payment Application (CPA), card personalisation, Payment Tokenisation, and 3-D Secure.

ASC X9F6 writes and maintains standards used in retail financial services to support authentication of payment card users. The suite of standards addressed by the working group includes standards on the secure management and handling of Personal Identification Numbers (PINs), encryption key management for keys used in retail financial transactions, message authentication, tamper resistant security module evaluation, and Integrated Chip Cards (ICCs). The working group is also responsible for a series of technical reports that provide usage guidance for its standards.

The Electronic Transactions Association is the leading trade association for the payment industry, representing companies worldwide involved in electronic transaction processing products and services. The purpose of ETA is to influence, monitor and shape the payments industry by providing leadership through education, advocacy and the exchange of information.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 162 national standards bodies. Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.

OASIS promotes industry consensus and produces worldwide standards for security, Internet of Things, cloud computing, energy, content technologies, emergency management, and other areas. OASIS open standards offer the potential to lower cost, stimulate innovation, grow global markets, and protect the right of free choice of technology.

The PCI Security Standards Council offers robust and comprehensive standards and supporting materials to enhance payment card data security. These materials include a framework of specifications, tools, measurements and support resources to help organizations ensure the safe handling of cardholder information at every step. The keystone is the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which provides an actionable framework for developing a robust payment card data security process — including prevention, detection and appropriate reaction to security incidents.
