PCI Compliance

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global payment security standard for credit and debit cards. It’s used to ensure those that are processing payments are doing so safely – and we meet the highest standard. PCI Level 1 compliance is given only to merchants who securely process over 6 million card transactions every year.

P2PE Partnership

Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) ensures that in-person and over-the-phone card payments are as secure as possible. We partner with Bluefin, the leader in payment security, to offer a P2PE solution that reduces PCI scope and protects your campus and cardholders from a data breach.
