CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 11, 2015--
CBTS, a leading technology solutions provider and wholly owned
subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell, today announced that its Managed Services
team has completed PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security
Standard) compliance certification.
CBTS provides managed services for a wide range of businesses. The PCI
certification of the enhanced Managed Services environment demonstrates
our commitment to meeting the compliance requirements that retail and/or
financial services customers need in CBTS’ hosted solutions.
“When companies see that we have the PCI certification, it reinforces
their trust and confidence in doing business with us,” said Paul Howard,
vice president of CBTS Managed Services.
CBTS made significant investments in several security tools,
infrastructure, staff and staff development.
“Cincinnati Bell is committed to partnering with CBTS customers to meet
their security and compliance needs,” said Leo Cronin, chief security
officer for Cincinnati Bell.
Data and security breaches continue to pose a threat to companies of all
sizes, and Howard stressed that PCI compliance certification is not a
one-time event. It’s an ongoing process that requires constant vigilance
and regular auditing from customers and third-party organizations.
“CBTS was already well-positioned as a top-tier services provider. This
makes us even more competitive,” Howard said.
