ASHBURN International Got the PCI DSS Level 1 Certification

Payment card transactions management services provided by ASHBURN International meet the highest security standards. The safety of bank card data is confirmed by the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) Level 1 certificate received in May 2021.

Compliance with the requirements of this standard has been confirmed by the results of the audit conducted by COGNIT CONSULT, and implies a comprehensive adoption of security measures in the work with payment cards.

“The PCI DSS certificate confirms a high level of protection of card data from unauthorized use. Reliability and security are the main priorities of our company. Since 2007, ASHBURN International has been annually audited for compliance with PCI DSS requirements. During the audit, the compliance of business processes, information security tools and IT infrastructure of the company with security requirements is tested,” says Rolandas Budriūnas, the Chief Financial Officer of ASHBURN International.

The payment card industry data security standard was developed in 2005 by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), established by the global payment companies Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB and Discover.


PCI DSS requirements apply to all companies that process payment card data (banks, processing centers, service providers, e-commerce systems, etc.). Even if a company does not store this data, but only uses or transmits it over the network, it automatically becomes a member of the payment system, which means it must have PCI DSS.

The company infrastructure is assessed by a PCI SSC certified expert auditor. Considering ASHBURN International’s transaction processing activities, compliance with the highest PCI DSS Level 1 requirements is mandatory. Passing certification is a guarantee of reliability and clear evidence of the high standards of work that the company adheres to.
