In addition to Visa CISP, Ambiron will be renewing Shift4’s certification for compliance with MasterCard Site Data Protection (SDP) program and the American Express Data Security Operating Policies (DSOP). Through Ambiron’s Multi Card Compliance Program, compliance with the Discover Information Security Compliance (DISC) and Visa’s Account Information Security (AIS) programs will also be validated as part of this single assessment process. Vital Signs is Ambirons proprietary vulnerability management tool that offers merchants and service providers a single process for compliance with all the card association data security programs.

The card association data security programs are designed to protect cardholder information during the transaction process. The data security programs are a set of best practices that merchants and service providers should adhere to in the handling and transmitting of cardholder information. MasterCard and Visa require merchants and service providers to comply with their respective data security standards. Merchants and service providers must demonstrate compliance with those standards on an annual basis. Shift4 is demonstrating their dedication to the principals of data security through their assessment against all of the card association standards.
