Digital Payment Technologies Achieves PCI Certification

Digital Payment Technologies Corp., a leading supplier of revenue-management solutions for the global parking industry, is pleased to announce it has successfully completed its security audit and achieved full certification as a Level 1 Service Provider under the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.
Digital Payment Technologies engaged PSC of San Jose, CA (, a Qualified Payment Application Security Professional (QPASP) firm, in September 2006 to achieve official validation and certification for its products and services under the credit card industrys PCI security standard. Certification of Digital Payments credit card handling systems involved a complete audit and approval of information storage, processing and transmission of credit card information using secure encryption methods, and additionally involves security documentation and updated company security procedures. Digital Payment will be officially posted on both Visa and MasterCard sites in the next 30 to 45 days when they update their respective PCI Approved Lists.

"We are very pleased to provide our clients with this announcement of PCI certification, as it assures of our commitment to delivering solutions that meet the highest security standards. Our official certification will also greatly assist them in their own PCI audits, as official certification is now mandatory," said Andrew Scott, CEO of Digital Payment Technologies. "The Digital Payment team has put a lot of work into achieving Level 1 certification under PCI, and we are committed to maintaining this certification level over the long-term."

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard was created in 2004 and is based to a large extent on Visas Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) previously established in June 2001. The standard provides guidelines and rules for merchants and service-providers handling credit card information, and is intended to protect credit card data wherever it resides and assure cardholders that merchants and service providers maintain the highest information security standards. In September 2006, the PCI Security Standards Council ("PCI SSC") became the recognized credit card industry standards organization to own, maintain and distribute the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and all its supporting documentation.
