Ensuring our commitment to Level 1 PCI DSS certification
We are pleased to announce that we have been re-certified to Level 1 - Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 3.2.
The PCI DSS includes a set of comprehensive requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. This covers the six goals of the standards, which are to:
- Build and Maintain a Secure Network
- Protect Cardholder Data
- Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
- Implement Strong Access Control Measures
- Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
- Maintain an Information Security Policy
We obtained our first Level 1 PCI DSS certification in 2015 and today we remain at the highest level of compliance. To ensure the continuous compliance with this standard, we are audited by an accredited company on a yearly basis. The PCI DSS certification was granted following a security audit by Vectra Corporation, a PCI DSS Qualified Security Assessor.
Our team have continually ensured the requirements of the standard are implemented, managed and maintained, and by achieving this certification once again, DA confirms its highest dedication to protecting the safety of data. We remain committed to keeping our systems secure so that the members and customers of our clients are able to trust their financial institutions with their sensitive payment card information.
