Lagos. October 22, 2012: Guaranty Trust Bank Plc has unveiled a new website to boost its capacity to offer better banking and allied services through the online channels.
The bank announced this at the weekend to its customers noting that, “due to this upgrade, you might experience a little downtime while accessing our website.”
The upgrade to the new website comes just as GTBank’s alternative banking channels received a boost recently with the Bank’s receipt of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard certification (PCIDSS).
PCIDSS certification is a worldwide security standard maintained by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCISSC) to detail acceptable technical and operational requirements, which help organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud, hacking and various other security vulnerabilities and threats.
Segun Agbaje, Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc, said recently that a certificate of compliance has since been issued to the Bank validating its compliance as a level 1 Acquirer and Issuer under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, Version 2.0.
Agbaje assured customers that the Bank’s card products, internet banking platform and other alternative channels are safe and reliable.
According to him, ‘we will continue to ensure that our channels are safe and reliable. This has influenced the various new service offerings we have pioneered recently and the security upgrades our internet banking platform has undergone. I am happy to say that this channel is now at par with platforms of foreign banks and our savings account customers have been performing 3rd party transfers and other transactions via the channel’.
