Teranet boosts online payment security

    TORONTO, June 11 /CNW/ - Teranet Inc. is pleased to announce today that
it has successfully been validated as a fully compliant service provider with
the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).
    "Security is our top priority and embracing controls that protect online
credit card transactions are in the best interest of our clients and our
company," said Mike Sliwinski, Vice-President, Information Services at
    Teranet received this designation by fulfilling twelve comprehensive
requirements designed to protect credit card security, card holder data, and
information networks.
    "The sophisticated processes we already had in place made the auditing
experience go quickly and smoothly," Sliwinski said.
