Payload Achieves Dual Certification, Bolstering Commitment to Data Security

May 9, 2024

Payload attained its SOC 2 Type II certification and also renewed its PCI DSS Level 1 certification for the fourth year in a row, marking a significant enhancement in its commitment to data security and compliance. 

The audits confirm Payload’s adherence to the stringent criteria set by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The assessments covered data security, system availability, vendor management and data integrity, alongside the secure processing and storage of payment information.

"Adding SOC 2 Type II to our compliance certifications is not merely about meeting regulatory requirements; it is about affirming our core values of transparency, security, and trust in every transaction," said Ryan Rybolt, CEO of Payload. "These certifications reflect our culture of compliance and dedication to robust data protection practices, which resulted in us completing the most straightforward certification to date according to our auditors."

The SOC 2 Type II certification evaluates the efficacy of Payload’s systems and controls related to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Meanwhile, the PCI DSS Level 1 certification is the highest mark of security standards for organizations that handle credit card transactions, ensuring the protection of payment data.

"As we continue to innovate and lead in technology solutions, maintaining secure and compliant operations remains our top priority," said Ian Halpern, CTO of Payload. "These certifications are key to our commitment, providing our clients and partners with peace of mind that their data is in safe hands."
