RDX recognizes the trust our customers place in our organization and the important role we play in safeguarding their sensitive data. This is not a responsibility that RDX takes lightly. Our highest priority is to safeguard our customers' most sensitive database data stores.
Although we do not store or process data for our customers, RDX understood that adhering to one of the most comprehensive security and privacy frameworks in the IT industry would allow us to create a strong foundation to build our security architecture upon. Becoming PCI compliant is yet another step in our ongoing corporate security strategy.
PCI is more than just a listing of arbitrary compliance objectives, it is a proven security process that helps organizations protect their data from outside attacks. The PCI Security Standards Council's audit requirements are continuously enhanced to deal with new threats as they are identified. The organization's goal is to continuously evolve its protection strategies to ensure that customer card holder data continues to be protected.
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of over 400 individual audit objectives designed to ensure that companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. The audit objectives consists of 6 major goals:
Commissioned in late 2012, the year long project required hundreds of analysis and implementation hours. New hardware and software components, new processes and standardized procedures were created to ensure RDX adhered to all PCI audit objectives. During this time, RDX worked with an accredited, third-party auditing firm to ensure that our organization would be held to the highest standard possible. PCI does allow self-accreditation for some organizations. RDX understood that only by working with an independent auditing firm would we be held to the high standards required by our customers.
RDX received its final PCI Attestation documentation from our auditing firm in October of 2013. RDX is very proud to have achieved this compliance. It is yet another step in our goal of ensuring that we provide the most secure environment possible to our customers.
