PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). This standard has been developed in recent years by the major credit card associations as a set of regulations for organizations that process card payments. It affects virtually all areas of our business and dictates many aspects of our day-to-day operations. Any company processing, storing, or transmitting credit card numbers must be PCI DSS compliant or they risk substantial fines or revocation of their ability to process credit card transactions.
As a part of our PCI DSS compliance procedures, our web sites and servers are tested on a daily basis for potential vulnerabilities by Beyond Security and McAfee Secure™. The presence of their real-time security seal on all of our credit card processing pages confirms their independent assessment of our network security.
Credentials submits to an independent third-party audit for PCI compliance each year by Crowe Horwath LLP (a PCI DSS Qualified Security Assessor). A copy of our Certificate of Compliance as of November 30, 2016 is available below.
