ACS Technologies® Achieves new level of PCI DSS Certification

    Ensuring ongoing PCI security compliance demonstrates ACS Technologies’ leading position in top-rated service to clients

    January 26, 2017, Florence, S.C. – ACS Technologies®, the world’s leading provider of church management software and service solutions, today announced the completion of its most recent Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance audit. By achieving and maintaining compliance, ACS Technologies will continue providing the most secure and reliable environment for its clients’ valuable data. 

    The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard), created by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., is a data security standard for organizations that handle client cardholder information. It includes specifications for security policies, management, procedures, network architecture, and software design. 

    Being certificated as a PCI DSS Level 1 Service Provider is a standard few reach in the faith based software market, but it is vital to ensure clients’ credit card data is stored and processed securely. The audit includes vulnerability scanning, document collection and analysis, as well as ongoing scans and penetration tests.

    “Protecting our clients’ information is a responsibility we take very seriously,” says Dean Lisenby, Sr. Director of Information Technology, ACS Technologies. “Our relationship with our clients is built on trust, so we keep working very hard to make sure our security programs are the best possible. Continued compliance with the PCI standards shows that we are committed to giving our clients the very best service and top-notch security.”
