We are a certified Level 1 PCI 3.2 Service Provider

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a mandated set of security requirements for protecting cardholder data. These standards were developed by the founding payment brands of the PCI Security Standards Council—American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard and Visa—to facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis.

Separate from the mandate to comply with PCI DSS is the validation process. Validation ensures that appropriate levels of cardholder information security are maintained. Validation levels are based upon transaction volume and potential risk.

For organizations that accept electronic payments, there are four validation levels.

For service providers, such as Vanco, that store, process or transmit cardholder data on behalf of acquirers, issuers, merchants or other service providers, there are two validation levels.
