The security of Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana) Limited’s cards and digital banking platforms have been re-affirmed as best in class and in compliance with the global Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCIDSS) as the bank was presented with an Attestation of Compliance (AoC) by global certification company, Sysnet Global Solutions on 8th May 2019.
The certification is an affirmation of GTBank’s commitment to protect customers’ data in strict compliance of data security standards set by the global payment card industry and the Bank of Ghana’s directive on cyber security and electronic payment channels.
Speaking to the benefit of the certification to GTBank customers, Divisional Head of Enterprise Risk Management, Mr. Oscar Dadzie indicated the attainment of the certification is testament of the Bank’s commitment to protecting customers from electronic fraud and related threats.
He said “As a bank reputed for leading electronic and digital banking in Ghana, we have a responsibility to ensure that customers’ data and transactions are safe and secured at all times. This re-affirmation and PCIDSS accreditation means that customers can transact using GTBank cards and digital channels with utmost confidence and assurance that their data and transactions are protected”.
GTBank in March 2018 became the first bank in West Africa to be endorsed by Sysnet after the Central Bank directed all banks and merchants operating within the country to acquire PCIDSS certification.
The Bank has over the years introduced world class digital platforms including its flagship Bank *737#, GTWorld and payments collection platform, Myghpay which enable customers and the general public to transact anywhere, anytime without visiting a banking hall.
