SPONSORED: Sensitivity to the growing number of privacy breaches is at an all-time high in our data-saturated world, so it is critical that agencies do everything within their power to protect clients’ data.

Sydney-based multi-channel direct marketing agency, mmw3degrees, is one of the first in NSW to achieve accreditation for global compliance in Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS).

PCI DSS is the international standard that an organisation of any size must now adhere to in order to accept payment cards, and to store, process, and/or transmit cardholder data.

By providing a PCI DSS validated infrastructure, mmw3degrees now operates with the highest security level when processing customer data on behalf of its many corporate clients such as Telstra, HSBC, and The Westpac Group.

The certification, a result of two years' planning and development, gives mmw3degrees' clients – and their customers – assurance that their data has an unprecedented level of protection.

"We are extremely proud to be one of the first direct marketing agencies in NSW to achieve certification from the PCI Security Standards Council," said Amanda Robinson, CEO, mmw3degrees.

"Over the last few years, mmw3degrees has invested heavily in upgrading our Information Security Systems whilst always maintaining a high level of customer service and operational standards. In these sensitive times, when privacy breaches are becoming more common, it is critical that mmw3degrees is doing everything within its power to protect our clients’ data."

The business prides itself on its “one brief approach” as an end-to-end provider of multi-channel direct marketing, print procurement, digital solutions such as UX design, web and app development and analytics – all securely managed and processed onsite to world's best practise via its PCI DSS framework.
