In 2013 we announced two major advancements in our data security practices when we expanded our Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard 2.0 (PCI DSS) compliance certification to all of our facilities and achieved ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) certification through BSI. Today we announced we’ve renewed and upgraded to the latest standards, ISO 27001: 2013 and PCI DSS 3.1.
In just a few short years the use of data in direct marketing, and specifically direct mail, has grown exponentially. Our ongoing investments in digital inkjet technology are a direct result of the power that strategic use of data brings to marketing campaigns. This is driving incredible success for our clients through 1-to-1 communications. Like gold in Fort Knox, data must be protected to the very best of our ability.
By its nature, a commitment to data security is an ongoing process and must be part of a company’s strategic plan and culture. There is no finish line, and you can’t rest once you’ve passed a strenuous certification audit. That’s why we conduct regular internal and external audits to assure compliance. It’s a demanding, but necessary, process. We’re proud of our team’s efforts to ensure we take the security of our clients’ data as seriously as they do.
