“Brown Paper Tickets’ adherence to the most rigorous PCI-DSS internet security standards demonstrates our ongoing dedication to protection against credit card fraud and other security threats,” said Steve Butcher, CEO of Brown Paper Tickets.

PCI-DSS standards are put in place by major credit card brands, including American Express, Discover Financial Services, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc. Requirements cover a variety of issues, including maintaining secure systems and infrastructure, cardholder data, data encryption during storage and transmission, physical access controls, tracking and logging activity, testing, personnel training and vetting. Merchants and service providers must implement and uphold PCI standards and solutions to become qualified.

To be certified PCI-DSS v3.2 Level 1 compliant, Brown Paper Tickets underwent a third party audit confirming adherence to the most up to date and demanding PCI standards.

“We’ve always done our best to protect those who use our services. PCI-DSS level 1 compliance is a step further in fighting data compromise,” says Butcher. “We will continue to uphold PCI-DSS standards and plan to renew our validation annually.”
