May 13, 2010 02:54 PM Eastern Daylight Time
ADDISON, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Digital Matrix Systems, Inc., creator of innovative solutions
that enhance credit-based decisions, announced that it has successfully completed its Payment Card Industry Data
Security Standard (PCI-DSS) self-assessment and Experian Independent Third Party Assessment (EI3PA)
certification. These technical and operational assessments are designed to help protect consumer information.
“Staying on top of security is a high priority for us,” said David McGough, president of DMS. “Our team conducts
numerous internal and external assessments and audits to ensure the security of data as part of an ongoing
commitment to our clients.”
The PCI-DSS is a comprehensive standard to help organizations proactively protect customer account data. In
addition to meeting network security requirements, DMS met PCI standards related to data protection, access
control, systems maintenance and testing, and employee/contractor information policies.
The EI3PA certification is an annual assessment of an Experian reseller’s ability to protect the information they
purchase from Experian. This requires an evaluation of information security by an independent assessor, based on
requirements provided by Experian. These requirements have been adapted from PCI-DSS.
DMS holds multiple security certificates. Audits of DMS security and procedures have been successfully conducted
by six of the top 20 financial institutions, the Internal Revenue Service and each of the credit bureaus in the United
States and Canada.
