London, United Kingdom - March 15, 2019 /PressCable/ —

London, England, March 15, 2019 — CEX.IO has received PCI DSS Level 1 certification after an annual audit. With over 2.7 million users choosing CEX.IO, the total volume of card payment data processed by the platform has increased significantly over the past year.

To ensure that security measures for customers’ funds meet the highest standards, CEX.IO regularly passes an international assessment of procedures and technical infrastructure. The upgrade of the company’s PCI DSS compliance certification to Level 1 proves that CEX.IO processes and stores customer card data securely.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations that handle credit card data. It includes measures to prevent and detect data breaches as well as steps to take in case a breach has occurred. Companies dealing with credit card payments must comply with a broad list of essential requirements as per PCI DSS.

“We are happy to report that CEX.IO has satisfactorily met all PCI DSS requirements and has achieved Level 1 certification. We are confident that CEX.IO will be able to maintain this certification as an annual obligation and we are happy to support them on this journey for many years to come.” — Trevor Axiak, director of Kyte.Global

“CEX.IO conducts audits of different standards on a regular basis. In December 2018, we passed an independent audit as one statutory requirement of effective Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML), including evaluation of internal policies and procedures. And now, due to the card payment audit results, we possess a PCI DSS Level 1 certificate, which gives our customers assurance that their data is protected in accordance with the highest standards.” — Oleksandr Lutskevych, CEO of CEX.IO

Irrespective of whether a company processes, stores, and transmits personal data of customers, information security should always be a top priority, and aligning with industry standards is the best way to provide assurance to customers.

HONG KONG — Thailand's exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra won't know until Sunday whether people in his homeland are still fans of his politics, but he was happy as he hosted a wedding reception in Hong Kong for his youngest daughter. Though ostensibly a family affair with a raft of VIP guests, the timing of Friday ceremony two days ahead of Thailand's first general election since a 2014 military coup seemed to carry an implicit message to Thaksin's countrymen: Don't forget me and my political allies when you go out to vote.

BEIJING — Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen left Thursday on a tour of diplomatic allies in the Pacific that will end with a stopover in Hawaii.

Mar 24, 2019

SYDNEY — Super Rugby's governing body plans to issue a statement on Friday over the future of the 15-team competition with speculation that the Tokyo-based Sunwolves will be cut after just three years in the tournament.
