Digital Matrix Systems, Inc. Finalizes PCI-DSS and EI3PA Security Assessments

Addison, Texas (May 13, 2010)

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.
