At the PCI Security Standards Council, we encourage you to make payment security a top priority for your organization in 2015.

Presenting the PCI Security Standards Council’s Qualified Integrators and Resellers (QIR) program.

Now it’s time to take action

Security of payment card data is a never-ending race against potential attackers.  By becoming a QIR, your company is demonstrating you understand and can apply the PCI standards and that you care about your customer’s security.  With data breaches continuing to capture news headlines, merchants are increasingly concerned about securing their cardholder data and they will value your proactive approach to addressing these concerns.

We’ve made some significant changes and improvements to the QIR program, including:

- Simplified application process
- Affordable pricing
- Updated training for participants
- Extended qualification period (now 3 years)

Plus, as a QIR you’ll have a competitive advantage over untrained installers since your company will have extra visibility with a listing as an approved service provider on the PCI website.

Payment card security is a shared responsibility and you can play a significant role as a QIR.  We invite you to visit the QIR page on our website for further information about getting trained and qualified. To start the application process, please register your QIR Company by completing the Registration Form linked on our website.

Please contact us at QIR@pcisecuritystandards.org with any questions you may have.

Sincerely,
Rebecca
