Simply Spanish Wine is run on Shopify, one of the world's leading ecommerce platforms powering millions of online stores around the world.
As a leading ecommerce provider, Shopify puts payment security at the heart of its platform and rigorously complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
PCI DSS is a security standard for organizations that handle credit and debit card information. The standard was created to increase controls around payment data to reduce fraud. Anyone who wants to sell online and accept payments from Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover, needs to ensure their software and hosting is PCI compliant.
Shopify is certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant. This compliance extends by default to all stores powered by Shopify - so that includes Simply Spanish Wine. Shopify’s compliance covers all six PCI standard categories and applies to every store using its platform.
- Maintain a secure network
- Protect cardholder data
- Maintain a vulnerability management program
- Implement strong access control measures
- Regularly monitor and test networks
- Maintain an information security policy
We are very serious about your security and one of the reasons we chose Shopify to host our store is because of their commitment to PCI. From annual on-site assessments validating compliance to continuous risk management, they work continually to keep our shopping cart and ecommerce hosting secure.
