All organizations accepting card payments must validate that they meet PCI (Payment Card Industry) DSS (Data Security Standards).
Your organization must complete an annual PCI Questionnaire that includes attestation that your Third Party Servicer is PCI compliant i.e. “The third party service provider(s) handling storage, processing, and/or transmission of cardholder data is confirmed to be PCI DSS compliant. (Yes/No)”
To be PCI compliant, your Third Party Servicer must be registered with Visa and MasterCard.
Failure to maintain data security as prescribed by PCI DSS could result in a data breach and financial penalties to your organization.
