PCI DSS ACHIEVED THROUGH A TRIO OF PARTNERS Monday 12 November 2007 PDF Print Designer Clothing 4U benefits from working with MoneySpyder and Evolution Security Systems Limited to ensure compliance to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Designer Clothing 4U, the secure online ladies’ fashion retailer, has today announced that it has been certified as fully compliant to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) through its ongoing relationship with MoneySpyder and Evolution Security Systems Limited. Designer Clothing 4U has been working closely with MoneySpyder – the experts in e-commerce – to develop and host a state-of-the-art secure e-commerce site, which in turn has enlisted the help of Evolution Security Systems Limited – the digital security specialist – to act as a consultant on the PCI DSS aspects of the project. Mike Carr, managing director of Designer Clothing 4U, states, “We knew PCI DSS was on the horizon but the industry reaction was to sit tight and hope that it blows over. However, high profile cases such as the TK Maxx incident has elevated secure payment transactions to a new level and indicated that PCI DSS had to become the number one priority for our organisation and, indeed, our customers.” As a result, Designer Clothing 4U turned to MoneySpyder for help in their mission to provide their customers with a secure payment environment and become compliant to PCI DSS. MoneySpyder has been compliant with PCI DSS since May 2007. James Aston, managing director of MoneySpyder, comments, “As far as MoneySpyder was concerned, we had to comply to PCI DSS as a matter of best practice and we also needed to understand what it meant for our business and for our customers. We enlisted the help of Evolution Security Systems Limited, which undertook an independent audit of our systems and procedures and provided education, guidance and support on the processes required to comply to PCI DSS. This means that Designer Clothing 4U along with our other clients benefit from using compliant systems.” Evolution works with some of Europe and Asia’s largest – and smallest – organisations to provide consultancy and technical support to such initiatives as PCI DSS. Ritchie Jeune, CEO, Evolution Security Systems, explains, “PCI DSS is predominantly about common sense – for example, ensure wireless networks are using strong encryption. However, as many retail organisations are currently merely paying lip service to this legislation, they obviously need to be doing a lot more. It is a great credit to MoneySpyder and Designer Clothing 4U that they have not only ‘future-proofed’ their solution but have also been proactive in achieving compliance; this is one to be upheld as an example to the Retail sector.” ...ends...
