Please note, if you run the Am I Ready Checker, and it shows your computer Passes, your computer is PCI DSS compliant. You do not need to take any further action on your computer.
With fraud and hacking costing the industry an estimated $1bn annually and growing, the protection of your customer data security is paramount. Maintaining a set of security standards to combat this criminal activity is critical when dealing with customer credit card information. That is why the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) have been developed. In its latest version, a more secure encryption protocol, Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 or higher, will be required in order to meet the PCI DSS compliance obligations from 30th June 2018.
IATA has also issued a resolution stating that any IATA agent that accepts card transactions against its own merchant agreement or issues Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP) card transactions will fall under the PCI DSS compliance obligations. It has stated that failure to comply with these by 01st March 2018 will result in the issuance of an administrative non-compliance and could lead to the removal of card as a form of payment.
Supporting you on your journey towards PCI DSS compliance
We each have responsibilities to ensure compliance of the new PCI DSS standard and IATA Resolution. Travelport is serious about data security, so to ensure you continue to be fully PCI DSS compliant with the new protocol, we will be releasing new versions of Galileo SSL and Travelport Smartpoint for agents in early November 2017. You will need to upgrade to the latest version of Galileo SSL 3.0.0 (if you use SSL in your configuration) and Travelport Smartpoint 7.5, prior to 01 March 2018 in order to be ready for the new security standards.
The Am I Ready checker allows you to verify your software versions to save time and frustration from having to look up version numbers. It verifies the following versions:
1) your operating system
2) .NET framework
3) Browser version and presence of TLS 1.2
4) Travelport Smartpoint
5) Galileo Desktop
6) Galileo SSL
The am I ready checker also verifies that the TLS protocol is working correctly.
You can run this utility as often as you want, and copy the results. You do not need to be signed into Apollo or Galileo to run this checker. You must be on a supported Operating system of Win 7 (SP1) or higher.
Have your Travelport Marketplace administrator order this checker. Then everyone in the office will be able to download it.
Please see the User guide for more information.
Once the Am I Ready checker has run, and you pass the checks, you may print the screen for your records and share it with your agency management, otherwise, no further action is required for your desktop PCI DSS check.
