PCI-DSS Compliance

Secure cardholder data to guard against breaches.


As a merchant who handles cardholder data, you are required by Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express to complete an annual certification called PCI-DSS. PCI-DSS, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, are a set of best practices and requirements to protect you from compromising your customers’ card data. Certification must be completed annually.


As an Elavon merchant, you are automatically enrolled in a PCI compliance program maintained by Sysnet, a leading Qualified Security Assessor and Approved Scanning Vendor in the PCI-DSS program.  When your account is established, you will be provided information to log into the Sysnet program to complete your PCI-DSS requirement.
