Senate Approves Probe Into EVERTEC after Network Outage

By on January 21, 2016

SAN JUAN – The Puerto Rico Senate will investigate the processing of electronic payment transactions carried out by EVERTEC, a company based in San Juan, after it passed a resolution to such an effect Thursday.

Popular Democratic Party Sen. Luis Daniel Rivera Filomeno presented Senate Resolution 1321 after the debit card system operated by EVERTEC broke down Jan.9, causing several problems at points of sale and automated-teller machines across the island.

The investigation not only aims to probe into the safety measures involved in the transmission of financial data, it also seeks to know more about the rates EVERTEC charges clients for its service.
