PCI and PA-DSS Compliance

Data security is a top priority for both the software that AdvantageCS develops and the valuable services that we provide to our clients.  A key measure of that priority is the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) certification that we maintain.  This certification involves an in-depth independent audit inspecting the software for any vulnerabilities, the integration of data security into our software design, and reviews of our internal policies and procedures related to the handling of sensitive data. This certification supports our clients in their own Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance efforts.

GDPR and CCPA Compliance

AdvantageCS collaborates with our clients in ensuring compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that is in effect in the European Union and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) that is in effect in California.  The GDPR regulation covers the protection of personal data for EU citizens and how it is to be handled by Data Controllers.  The CCPA law covers the proper handling of consumer data for California residents in relation to marketing and security. We’ve worked with many of our clients to leverage the Advantage software to ensure their compliance with these regulations, as well as ensuring that AdvantageCS services are provided in full compliance.
