Deutsche Card Services Acquiring Platform Meets PCI DSS Requirements for the Eighth Time in a row

COLOGNE, Germany, May 17, 2011 - Deutsche Card Services is the first European acquiring platform to
receive the PCI Security Certificate eight times in a row. Once again, this
certificate confirms that the Deutsche Bank subsidiary ensures the best
possible protection against any misuse of sensitive data. The successful
certification proves that the security is in line with the strict
requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS),
which is the benchmark for all organisations that process, store or transmit
card information - including merchants.

The PCI Security Standards Council, which developed the standard, was
founded as an open, international forum by leading credit card companies.
Today, its task is to develop and update the PCI security standards, to
administrate them, to explain them and to increase awareness of them. All
five founding members agreed to integrate the PCI DSS standard as a technical
requirement into their data security conformity programmes.

"Reliability and a sense of responsibility are key characteristics of
Deutsche Bank Group. Compliance with the PCI security standards is an obvious
consequence of this approach. It is no coincidence that our acquiring
platform was the first in Europe to receive a PCI Security Certificate," says
Jens Mahlke, Chairman of the Management Board of Deutsche Card Services.

The PCI certification examinations at Deutsche Card Services
were conducted by SRC Security Research & Consulting. The company is the
joint centre of competence and consulting company for security relevant
applications and technologies of the four German publishers for the credit
industry, Bank-Verlag, Deutscher Genossenschafts-Verlag, Deutscher
Sparkassen-Verlag and VÖB-ZVD Bank für Zahlungsverkehrsdienstleistungen.
