Bittylicious has recent been security validated and has been found to be operating in compliance with PCI DSS standards.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is designed to increase controls around credit cardholder data to reduce credit card fraud. Bittylicious processes Visa and Master credit card transactions and becoming compliant with these standards is becoming more important.
Bittylicious does not store cardholder information but merely captures it and passes it on to payment processors. This significantly decreases the available attack area, meaning that cardholder data is much more likely to be secure.
Bittylicious already follows all best practices when it comes to security, and the PCI compliance status was granted immediately after the first network scan with no major issues found.
