THE ONE THING YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DATA SECURITY
01st Oct 2018
The subject of data breaches is enough to scare anyone who works with customer data. The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) noted in its quarterly report on data breach notifications that there were 242 data breach notifications made from 1 April to 30 June 2018 alone.
If you use your data for marketing or service communications, the one thing you really need to know about data security is that the company managing your data has watertight security.
Managing the risk
At mmw3degrees, we participate in more than six Information Security and Risk audits per year, with positive results.
Our Governance, Risk and Compliance Management team ensures we are always ahead of changes to regulations and compliance, so we can communicate to our clients in advance and assist with change management.
Working with a number of Australia’s largest financial bodies, we have been awarded PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) certification. This is the highest standard of data security in Australia, as used by banks and other major financial institutions.
This level of compliance is rare among marketing services providers. We are proud to be able to provide our customers with a standard of security that few others can offer.
Do you need PCI DSS compliance?
If you are worried about data security, you probably should be. But if you deal with credit card data, with mmw3degrees and PCI DSS compliance, you can sleep a little easier.
We believe this to be a mandatory and critical requirement when managing over 300 million credit card numbers through our business every year. This ensures that your customer data is processed in an environment with the lowest possible risks.
