Minacs Achieves PCI DSS Level 1 and Safe Harbor Certifications

Independent Assessment Yields Highest Level of PCI Compliance

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) - Aditya Birla Minacs, a global business solutions company (subsidiary of Aditya Birla Nuvo), today announced it has successfully recertified as a Level 1 Service Provider with the Processing Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Having once again attained this highest level of compliance in 2013, Minacs is listed in both the Visa and Mastercard registries of compliant service providers. This certification includes credit card issuers, acquirers, retailers, payment processors and merchants.

Minacs is expanding its global reach by achieving Visa and Mastercard PCI compliance in Europe and Asia Pacific and recently completed Safe Harbor certification and registration. The US-Europe Safe Harbor Framework, which was approved by Europe in 2000, is an important way for US organizations to avoid experiencing interruptions in their business dealings with Europe or facing prosecution by EU member state authorities under their privacy laws. Self-certifying to the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework is a demonstration of superior information management as part of overall operational excellence. The directive is becoming a de facto requirement for US multinationals with significant business presence in Europe.

Michael Iseyemi, Chief Security Officer said, "These achievements are integral to Minacs' larger goal of addressing our clients' priorities and helping them achieve business outcomes and meet stakeholder expectations. These certifications indicate Minacs' commitment to integrating risk management and compliance requirements into our solutions and operational management of client business."
