The story behind Jambubatu. Jambubatu is the Malay word for guava. Guava fruits, are round or oval depending on the species They have a pronounced and typical fragrance, similar to lemon rind but less sharp. The outer skin may be rough, often with a bitter taste, or soft and sweet. Varying between species, the skin can be any thickness, is usually green before maturity, but becomes yellow, maroon, or green when ripe. The pulp inside may be sweet or sour and off-white (“white” guavas) to deep pink (“red” guavas). The seeds in the central pulp vary in number and hardness, depending on species.
Some of the standards and requirements consulted on includes the following:
a) Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations that handle branded credit cards from the major card companies, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB.
PCI DSS was created, in order to preserve payment card and cardholders’ sensitive information, to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure.
Three-Domain Secure (3-D Secure, or 3DS) is a messaging protocol that enables consumers to authenticate themselves with their card issuer when making card-not-present (CNP) e-commerce purchases. The additional security layer helps prevent unauthorized CNP transactions and protects the merchant from exposure to CNP fraud. The three domains consist of the merchant/acquirer domain, issuer domain, and the interoperability domain (for example, Payment Systems)
The Card Production includes both the physical and logical security standards for card vendors (manufacturers and personalizers).
b) Management Systems (e.g. ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, ISO 22301, etc.), and
c) Multi-Tiered Cloud Computing Security (MTCS) SS 584.
