Anti-passback Anti-Passback prevents users from 'tailgating' through controlled areas by tracking the entry and exit counts. A user can only exit an area that they have already entered and can only enter an area that they previously exited. If a user tailgates onto a site, the exit keypad will deny exit to them because they are not logged into the area. If a user is onsite and tailgates off of the site, they will be denied exit next time they try to enter. Anti-Passback is a function that should only be used on High Security sites where users can be trained on its use.  
Audit Trail Paper or 'electronic' trail that gives a step by step documented history of a transaction. It enables an examiner to trace the chronological records or data from the source document. The presence of a reliable and easy to follow audit trail is an indicator of good internal controls instituted by a firm or organization and forms the basis of objectivity.

Credit Card At its core, a credit card is an instrument for a bank to pay for an item on your behalf, the amount of which you will owe the bank. In theory, when you pay for something with a credit card, that amount is not what you spent, but what you owe the bank. Each transaction you make with your credit card is tabulated in your credit card bill at the end of the monthly billing cycle. You are then required to pay the bank within a stipulated time frame (usually 20 days). Failure to do so will incur an interest rate of the outstanding amount you owe the bank.  
Data Analytics Data analytics (DA) is the process of examining data sets in order to draw conclusions about the information they contain, increasingly with the aid of specialized systems and software.

PCI-DSS Compliance The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards formed in 2004 by Visa, MasterCard, Discover Financial Services, JCB International and American Express. Governed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), the compliance scheme aims to secure credit and debit card transactions against data theft and fraud.

While the PCI SSC has no legal authority to compel compliance, it is a requirement for any business that processes credit or debit card transactions. PCI certification is also considered the best way to safeguard sensitive data and information, thereby helping businesses build long lasting and trusting relationships with their customers.

TID TID means “tag ID” and it refers to a unique serial number written to a RIFD microchip when the chip is manufactured. It cannot be altered. The tag ID differs from the serial number written to the tag after it is made. Some serial numbers may be programmed to the tag at the time the tag is manufactured, while others are programmed by the user after the chip’s acquisition. The TID and serial number are sometimes used together to confirm a tag’s authenticity. For example, a counterfeiter might buy microchips and program serial numbers to them to match serial numbers used by popular brands. But the brand owner could confirm a tag is fake by looking up whether it ever received tags with the TIDs in the counterfeit tags, even if the serial numbers looked the same as those it uses.

Unattended Payment Terminal/Kiosk An unattended self-service payment terminal is where the customer will activate the transaction. This means that the payment devices need to be securely enclosed and tamper proof for a secure self-service solution.

Unattended payments can be seen in train stations, car parks and vending machines and other temperamental environments due to the fact that they are IP 65 rated, and are therefore suitable for all weather types, and users. They are far more secure, but cost more.
Valet Parking Valet Parking is a parking service offered by some restaurants, stores, and other businesses. In contrast to "self-parking", where customers find a parking space on their own, customers' vehicles are parked for them by a person called a valet. This service either requires a fee to be paid by the customer or is offered free of charge by the establishment.  
Vehicle Counting System The Vehicle Counting System includes counting and displaying available parking bays. The ingresses and egresses of a counted area are equipped with controllers to keep track with the number of vehicles within the area and is reflected on the ‘No. of Available Parking Bays’ displays located at decision points – the entrance, ramps or between partitioned areas. It normally works with Parking Guidance System.
