“Delighted with the outcome of the audit”

Leading provider of payment processing and response handling solutions for the non-profit sector, Valldata Services Ltd, has announced that its operations and systems are Level 1 PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliant.

All companies handling transactions of over 300,000 must have Level 1 PCI DSS compliance. Valldata made the decision following a surge in donations paid by card.

Hamish Horton, CEO at Valldata said, “I’m delighted with the outcome of the audit. Achieving Level 1 PCI DSS compliance demonstrates Valldata’s ongoing commitment to the highest security and compliance standards possible. For Valldata, this is absolute priority and integral to the service that we offer our clients, given the terabytes of data and volume of payments that we process annually.”

John Cruise, Director of IT at Valldata said: “We take our responsibility for the data that we hold for clients extremely seriously and achieving Level 1 PCI DSS has reinforced this. The project has been intensive but it has been well worth the effort to affirm our rigorous standards in the eyes of the PCI DSS Security Council and the NFP sector as a whole.”
