At Gravity Payments, we understand the importance of application and data security in protecting your customers, and your business. Achieving PCI compliance is a critical step in meeting your obligations to protect your customers and their information. There are two types of PCI security standards you’ll want to be aware of: PCI PA-DSS (Responsibility of the software vendor) Gravity Payments offers applications and products that are PCI PA-DSS compliant. You can check our compliancy validation and learn more at the PCI Security Standards Council Website.
PCI DSS (Responsibility of the merchant) Achieving PCI-DSS compliance is the responsibility of every merchant who accepts credit and debit cards—it ensures that you are doing everything you can to safeguard your customers’ card data and that your business meets specific internal security requirements. The support team at Gravity Payments can point you in the right direction, but because it is a validation of the security of your own systems, merchants are responsible for achieving their own PCI-DSS compliance. Have questions? If you need help getting started, or if you have any questions on achieving PCI compliance, Gravity Payments representatives are standing by to help.
