An important message for our Customers with eGiving solutions.
The Payment Card Industry ("PCI") Security Standards Council was created to establish a uniform set of data security requirements for all national card brands, a.k.a. the PCI Data Security Standards ("PCI DSS"). PCI governs all retail, mail order, telephone order and e-commerce credit card transactions. All organizations that process, store, or transmit payment card data must comply with PCI DSS requirements or risk losing their ability to process credit card payments.
Yes. ACS Technologies Group, Inc. ("ACST") first became PCI compliant as a service provider on November 15, 2016, and we recertify annually. You may view our PCI compliance status anytime by visiting the VISA Global Registry of Service Providers, or the MasterCard Compliant Service Provider list. Attaining PCI compliance underscores our commitment to keeping the data for all of our Customers secure and private. Additionally, ACST partners with Vanco, a PCI Level 1-compliant card processor to process all payment card transactions securely.
ACST employs a dedicated team of information security professionals who work with PCI-qualified assessors to ensure that our products and environment comply or exceed the latest PCI standards.
ACST is pleased to share our PCI Attestation of Compliance with current and prospective Customers. Please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PCI Compliance seeks to create a safer environment for accepting payment cards worldwide. Every year ACST (your service provider) and Vanco (your merchant provider) undergo a rigorous PCI audit to certify that systems, policies, procedures, and processes meet compliance.
As a Customer using our eGiving solutions, you also have PCI responsibilities to ensure that best practices and security measures are in place to be in compliance with PCI standards. Even Guests have a responsibility in the safety of online payments.
We recommend that anyone who uses our online giving solutions implement these best practices:
