Strengthening Reliability: Announcing Sumsub’s PCI DSS Compliance

Innovation doesn’t add as much value if it is not trustworthy. That’s why, while translating complex processes into automation, we’re always trying our best to reach the highest standards of security for all of our clients.

Industry-recognized accreditation

Building on trust is something we have been pursuing from the very start. This time, we have pushed the boat out a little further to complete the assessment by Compliance Control, and we were awarded the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) attestation of compliance as a ‘Service Provider’.

A PCI DSS audit provides huge value as it evaluates the security of cardholder data, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design, and other critical protective measures of a business. Having achieved this industry-recognized accreditation, we are able to showcase our adherence to even the most stringent of data security and compliance requirements for the storing, processing, and transmitting of customer data.

Above all, we are happy to enhance the trust and confidence that clients feel towards our product.

Why PCI DSS is important for you (and all businesses)

Throughout the work on our chargeback prevention product, we have always maintained a focus on data safety. Over the past few years, we have successfully renewed our security and privacy ecosystem, and aligned it with some of the most widespread data protection laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA). PCI DSS complements this list greatly and has given us an opportunity to process cardholder data alongside undoubtable trust from our clients.

With PCI DSS, we have instilled confidence in our teams that we are getting more reliable by the day.

The path to better privacy and security

Security is central to everything that we do. This certification is just a small part of our ongoing privacy improvement as we continue to move forward with security audits, vulnerability scans, and penetration tests to improve and eliminate the possibility of a weakness existing within our system.

We truly value our customers’ trust, needs, and expectations. That is why we are committed to showcasing our results, while adopting even higher standards as time goes by. Don’t worry, when we do, you’ll be the first to know!
