CMC Again Achieves PCI DSS 3.1 Level 1 Service Provider Compliance

WILMINGTON, Delaware – April 26, 2016— CMC, a leading provider of credit customer management solutions for global lenders and creators of the SaaS CredAgility® platform, today announced the company has again, achieved PCI DSS 3.1 Level 1 certification.

CMC has been PCI certified since 2009. “From our inception security has been a top priority of ours”, said Joel Rickman, director of global sales. “Obtaining PCI DSS 3.1 Level I compliance validation reflects CMC’s continued investment and focus of data security protection at every point of our application and system architecture.“

Considered among the most stringent global data security standards, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), is the payment card industry security requirement for companies that store, process or transmit cardholder data and has been endorsed by all the major credit card brands including Discover Network, Visa Inc., MasterCard Worldwide, American Express, and JCB.

“Achieving PCI DSS compliance requires our constant vigilance”, said Arthur Haigh, CMC’s chief information security officer.  “In addition to rigorous tests of the effectiveness of our information and physical controls, we undergo network and application penetration testing. As a Level 1 service provider we are required to undergo quarterly scans of our internet presence by a PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV). We chose to exceed the standard requirements. This additional scrutiny provides us with up-to-date risk data enabling us to adjust and respond to the ever-changing threat environment.”

Collections Marketing Center, Inc. can be found on the VISA Global List of PCI DSS Validated Service Providers.
