NAVIS Raises the Bar to Achieve Highest Level of PCI DSS Level 1 Certification

Top designation reflects NAVIS’ adherence to the highest industry requirements for ensuring the security of its hotel and vacation rental clients’ guest data
BEND, Ore. (March 15, 2018) – NAVIS, the leader in reservation sales and marketing technology for the hospitality industry, today announced that it achieved Level 1 Compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). The company has now reached the highest industry rating any business can attain for payment data security.
The PCI standard is the most rigorous payment-card security standard available globally and is designed to minimize the exposure of credit card data to risk of fraud or compromise. NAVIS recently underwent a stringent independent audit to ensure that it meets industry best practices and security controls required, surpassing all expectations and passing with flying colors.
Amber Mayer, Vice President of Product Solutions at NAVIS explains, “Although the PCI Standard is more commonly associated with merchant activities, call centers and technology partners that capture sensitive data must also follow strict security protocols before their operations can be deemed safe for capturing guest information.”
Data security and breaches are still making headlines in the hospitality industry. According to a 2016 Verizon report, the accommodation (lodging) industry was second only to financial services when it comes to being impacted by security breaches. Security experts are even advising travelers to be on heightened alert when using hotels.
“Some hotels are not in compliance and don’t even know it,” adds Mayer. “There are significant penalties associated with noncompliance including lawsuits, audits, fines and even losing the ability to process credit card payments. The level of liability hoteliers and vacation rental owners carry is high, so it’s more important than ever they choose technology partners who’ve been certified by approved 3rd party PCI auditors.”
“We take data security seriously, and have invested heavily these last few years to ensure our technical and behavioral practices meet the most demanding requirements required for PCI DSS Level 1 certification,” said NAVIS CEO Kyle Buehner. “Our clients and their guests demand that sensitive information is never compromised; achieving this standard reassures them of that.”
