Data security and compliance are our highest priorities at AscensionPoint. We value our consumers’ privacy and are committed to upholding the trust our clients place in us with their personal data.
Compliance is an ongoing process, not a one-time checklist. It is essential to ensure the prevention, detection, and immediate response of a security breach or theft of payment card data.
PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DDS)
APRS is currently PCI 3.0 certified.
PCI 3.0 provides an actionable framework for developing a robust payment card data security process including prevention, detection and appropriate reaction to security incidents.
The PCI Security Standards Council is constantly working to monitor threats and improve the industry’s means of dealing with them through enhancements to PCI Security Standards and by the ongoing training of security professionals.
When you stay compliant, you are part of the solution- a united, global response to fighting payment card data compromise.
ISO 27002 Framework for Best Practices
APRS utilizes ISO 27002 for an Information Security Framework.
The ISO 27002 standard was originally published as a rename of the existing ISO 17799 standard, a code of practice for information security.
While this framework is not certifiable, it is a standard that outlines hundreds of potential controls and control mechanisms recommended for agencies to follow.
ISO 27002 is also intended to provide a guide for the development of “organizational security standards and effective security management practices and to help build confidence in inter-organizational activities.”
