Egypt – April 2016

ControlCase, a leading global provider of Compliance as a Service (CaaS), Certifications, and IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software is pleased to announce that it has certified the National Bank of Egypt (NBE) for Level 1 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Certification Version 3.1. NBE has been using ControlCase as the official Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) Company to achieve and maintain compliance with PCI DSS for the past few years.

PCI DSS is a global security standard that helps prevent credit card and data fraud by evaluating payment account data security and assessing an organization's network architecture, software design, security policies, procedures and protective practices. ControlCase’s CaaS solution includes a combination of hardware, software, onsite and offsite services that cost-effectively delivers one of the best values for achieving compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS, ISO and SOC.

“ControlCase is committed to working with NBE and other clients to not only achieve compliance but also to make security a ‘Business as Usual’ activity,” said Mr. Biju John, Vice President at ControlCase.
“Using our unrivalled solutions, we help clients enhance their internal controls, optimize their resources, and most importantly mitigate risk. This in turn enhances brand trust and supports business growth.”

Now in its third consecutive year of PCI DSS compliance, NBE continues to demonstrate its commitment to securing payment card data and providing value to their clients. Certification of compliance not only improves NBE’s customer experience but also reassures its stakeholders of NBE’s commitment to information security and compliance.

NBE hosted a ceremony at its headquarters in Egypt where Mr. John presented the Certificate of Compliance to Mr. Hisham Okasha, Chairman and CEO of NBE. Speaking at a ceremony in Egypt, Mrs. Dalia El-BaZ, COO at NBE commended the joint efforts and anticipates continued success and partnership with ControlCase. “As the largest bank in Egypt, NBE operates in a complex environment. This achievement proves the bank’s commitment to security and adhering to global standards,” said Mrs. El-Baz.
