Part of our commitment as responsible data processors is to maintain the highest level of industry standard securities. As schools across the country use our Online Payments software, millions of transactions are processed. Read more about our PCI certifications, giving customers peace of mind. 

What is PCI Compliance?

PCI Compliance is often abbreviated from Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. PCI DSS  is a set of security standards, developed by card brands such as Visa and Mastercard, that applies to any company which processes credit card payments. Through our Online Payments module, parents benefit from the ability to make payments directly to their child’s school bank account.

Why should payment providers be compliant?

Tucasi does not transmit or store card details. However, we still need to maintain PCI Compliance to support the PCI compliance status of each individual school.

Data protection and security has been a huge focus within the industries environment, especially since the amendments in the General Data Protection Regulations in May 2018.

Ensuring that your data is collected, stored, used and shared in the correct way is the reason why PCI Compliance exists. Any payments facilitator who processes over 300,000 transactions per year should be fully Level 1 compliant with PCI regulations. However, many are not.

Highest level of compliance

Tucasi is certified as a Level 1 service provider, which is the highest level of certification available. We take our school’s data seriously and comply with the highest levels of security. Working with leading security professionals ECSC, we have undertaken an external audit led assessment to achieve our compliance certificate.

Our customers and partners can rest assured that we are a forward-thinking, technology focussed company. Tucasi received this level of status by completing an on-site audit by a PCI recognised Qualified Security Assessor.


What this means for our customers

Our customers’ information is safely managed in accordance with PCI DSS regulations, providing peace of mind. Tucasi continually invests in information security, pushing the standard higher in the education space.

Our PCI compliance status also ensures you maintain your own compliance as a merchant. This protects you from expensive fines in the event of a breach. It is the responsibility of both Tucasi and the school as a merchant to ensure they are compliant. Our customers can rest easy, knowing that they have taken all the necessary preventative measures to protect valuable data.
