Information security consultancy and services company Sysnet has announced today it hopes to increase support staff at its Dublin office by up to 35 people after winning contracts with two major banking clients in recent months.
Sysnet said it will deliver PCI DSS merchant portfolio compliance validation to both clients. Used to combat cardholder data fraud, PCI DSS is a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing the security of payment account data, transactions and processing systems.
According to the company, the PCI DSS programme the banks will implement provides a complete suite of services, including an online portal, merchant helpline and associated services supported by a clear compliance policy and charging structure.
“This is another very significant achievement for Sysnet,” said Tom Moynagh, Sysnet’s managing director. “The company has grown rapidly in the last year and these latest client acquisitions will most likely see us add another 35 support people to our staff base.”
Last November, the company announced 60 new jobs as part of a major €1.27m expansion plan supported by Enterprise Ireland. That investment was designed to enable Sysnet to expand its export footprint and meet opportunities in emerging markets, such as Africa, Russia, the Ukraine and the Middle East.
