Press release from the issuing company

New ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and PCI-DSS 3.1 Critical Compliance Certifications Strengthen Data Security Practices 

Chanhassen, Minn. - In order to enhance its data security practices, IWCO Direct, a leading provider of direct marketing solutions, has announced it has achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification through BSI. The company has also achieved Level 1 Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard 3.1 (PCI DSS) compliance certification. These certifications extend to Mail-Gard®, a division of IWCO Direct which provides business continuity and disaster recovery services. 

In 2013 IWCO Direct achieved ISO 27001:2005 and PCI DSS 2.0 certifications. Since then, both standards have been upgraded. To demonstrate its commitment to Continuous Improvement and data security, IWCO Direct devoted significant time and resources to updating and validating its practices to encompass the latest data security standards.

“Everyone understands the importance of data security, but many companies haven’t taken the necessary steps to ensure they are doing everything possible to protect client data,” stated Jim Andersen, CEO of IWCO Direct. “When evaluating potential business partners, we encourage all direct marketers to evaluate whether a company places as high a priority on protecting customer data, and the potential consequences if they don’t.”
