RunSignup Certified PCI Level 1

Moorestown, NJ – RunSignup has received a PCI Level 1 Attestation of Compliance for Onsite Assessments as a Service Provider (available upon request). As a Payment Facilitator, RunSignup had hit the volume of processing that required us to move from a self assessment to a third party Qualified Service Provider doing onsite reviews as well as independent scanning and vulnerability testing. In addition, a number of additional levels of security, auditing and process are required for this highest level of processing.

The process took nearly 6 months to put in place all of the processes, procedures and infrastructure. Highlights of the requirements were:

  • Improved Encryption Key Management Procedures
  • Improved Network Configurations
  • Improved Employee, Customer, Participant Segmentation and Access Control and Login Management
  • 100% Code Review and Change Logs
  • System Hardening including implementation of Center for Internet Security recommendations
  • Improved Logging, OSSEC Log Analysis
  • Improved AntiVirus including implementation of ClamAV
  • Improved and constant Vulnerability Scanning including implementing Nessus

“We are pleased to make these improvements to our infrastructure that were required for this higher level of PCI Compliance over self assessment,” said Bob Bickel, Founder of RunSignup.
