PCI Compliance

Maintaining PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance is an industry-regulated requirement for all merchants accepting credit card payments so that cardholder data is safeguarded from fraud or misuse.

The Studio Director is a Level 1 PCI DSS certified service provider. By processing payments in The Studio Director, we take care of most of the PCI requirements, but we cannot certify PCI compliance for you. To certify and remain compliant, you are required to complete the certification process now and on an annual basis moving forward.

Be on the lookout for an email from Aperia, our partner who helps studios meet their PCI obligations, to begin your certification process.
