STARTEK is proud to announce our global PCI-DSS 3.1 certification.  Our annual certification is not only critical for our continued operations, but our consistent demonstrated compliance with increasingly stringent PCI standards.  At STARTEK, we value our clients and want to ensure we help eliminate risks to their customers. Staying compliant allows STARTEK to be part of the overall solution.  Year over year, we demonstrate our commitment to security and compliance by meeting and adhering to the certification changes.  At a summary level, STARTEK, as a Business Associate is required to:

  • Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability by building and maintaining a secure network
  • Protect against threats by maintaining vulnerability management programs like up to date Anti-Virus software
  • Implement strong access control measures by monitoring and testing networks
  • Uphold and follow our Information Security Policy

This year specifically involved a significant amount of effort from our IT team to align with a new version of more stringent audited PCI standards versus the prior year.  Please join us in thanking our entire IT Network and Systems teams for their time substantial time and diligence.
