Ensuring Your Institution Meets PCI Security Standards
“Most of the breaches—starting with hacking and then continuing with fraudulent use of credit card information—come about because of very simple things that could be fixed.”
– Ron King, President and Chief Operating Officer, CampusGuard
Nelnet Campus Commerce is PCI Level 1 Validated.
PCI compliance is the gold standard for security as it pertains to protecting credit and debit card information. The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is designed to ensure that all entities storing, processing, or transmitting credit and debit card information are doing so in a secure environment. There simply is no substitute for being PCI compliant or working with a vendor that is PCI Level 1 compliant. Nelnet Campus Commerce has obtained this level of validation, which can be verified on the Visa Global Registry.
When evaluating vendors, make sure they are validated as PCI Level 1 compliant. Ask them what it means, what they do to maintain compliance, and how they can help your institution mitigate and avoid the risks involved in accepting credit and debit cards as a means of payment at your college or university.
PCI compliance is likely the most important business issue you face when it comes to processing payments on campus.
