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.

NYON, Switzerland — Paris Saint-Germain won an initial legal battle with UEFA on Tuesday over the monitoring of its spending on player transfers and wages, and sponsorship deals linked to the club's Qatari owner. The Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld PSG's appeal against an attempt by UEFA investigators to reopen a previously closed investigation. The judgment in favor of PSG is separate from another UEFA investigation of its finances in the 2017-18 season when the French champions, backed by Qatari sovereign wealth, signed Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The most severe punishment in that ongoing probe could see UEFA ban...

Mar 19, 2019

RIO DE JANEIRO — Rio de Janeiro's state government will take back control of the crisis-ridden Maracana stadium and break the contract with its private administrators. Gov.

Soccer clubs Flamengo and Fluminense, which play at the stadium, both supported the termination of the contract with the former operator, the Consorcio Maracana, led by conglomerate...

FA Cup run hardens Wolves' status in English soccer

Mar 19, 2019

MANCHESTER, England — It has been abundantly clear for some time that Wolverhampton Wanderers wasn't going to be a typical promoted team in the Premier League this season. Funded by Chinese conglomerate Fosun International. Closely linked with "super-agent" Jorge Mendes. Owning players from international teams including Spain, Portugal and Mexico. "Wolves," as they are better known, were never going to have a problem preserving their top-flight status. It was simply a case of how high they could go in their first season back in the big time. Even they might be surprised how well it is going. Check out this...

Mar 19, 2019

NYON, Switzerland — UEFA has charged Cristiano Ronaldo for a provocative gesture mocking Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone after Juventus eliminated the Spanish club from the Champions League. UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge the charge of "improper conduct" on Thursday.
