Keep your business golden with CCPA

Vanta now supports the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA)

In 2020, California enacted the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), a state law that grants residents the right to know about, delete, and opt-out of the usage and sale of their personal data. 

With the highest population and largest economy in the US, California is an important market for nearly every technology business. It’s critical that companies fully understand their legal obligations when doing business with California consumers. Failure to comply with the CCPA comes with consequences, including hefty fines and diminished trust from customers.

Why CCPA compliance?

CCPA is California state law. Businesses that collect, use, or sell the personal information of California residents are subject to the act. By achieving CCPA compliance, companies can continue selling into the largest market in the US without interruption or penalty.

In addition to the peace of mind that comes with meeting legal requirements, companies choose to demonstrate their CCPA compliance to build trust with prospects and win new business. Technology sellers use CCPA to demonstrate the sophistication of their data security program and to get ahead of common security concerns from potential buyers.

Last, the CCPA is a forward-looking data policy that prepares organizations for consumer privacy laws in other markets. Companies use the CCPA to establish norms for protecting consumer data and expand to other standards, such as the GDPR, with ease due to the groundwork done with CCPA.

PCI Compliance Selection Guide

Determine Your PCI Compliance Level

If your organization processes, stores, or transmits cardholder data, you must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a global mandate created by major credit card companies. Compliance is mandatory for any business that accepts credit card payments.

When establishing strategies for implementing and maintaining PCI compliance, your organization needs to understand what constitutes a Merchant or Service Provider, and whether a Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) or Report on Compliance (ROC) is most applicable to your business.

Answer a few short questions and we’ll help identify your compliance level.


Does your business offer services to customers who are interested in your level of PCI compliance?


Identify your PCI SAQ or ROC level

The PCI Security Standards Council has established the below criteria for Merchant and Service Provider validation. Use these descriptions to help determine the SAQ or ROC that best applies to your organization.

Good news! Vanta supports all of the following compliance levels:


A SAQ A is required for Merchants that do not require the physical presence of a credit card (like an eCommerce, mail, or telephone purchase). This means that the Merchant’s business has fully outsourced all cardholder data processing to PCI DSS compliant third party Service Providers, with no electronic storage, processing, or transmission of any cardholder data on the Merchant’s system or premises.

Get PCI DSS certified


A SAQ A-EP is similar to a SAQ A, but is a requirement for Merchants that don't receive cardholder data, but control how cardholder data is redirected to a PCI DSS validated third-party payment processor.

for service providers

A SAQ D includes over 200 requirements and covers the entirety of PCI DSS compliance. If you are a Service Provider, a SAQ D is the only SAQ you’re eligible to complete.

Use our PCI checklist

Level 1 for service providers

A Report on Compliance (ROC) is an annual assessment that determines your organization’s ability to protect cardholder data. If you’re a Merchant that processes over six million transactions annually or a Service Provider that processes more than 300,000 transactions annually, your organization is responsible for both a ROC and an Attestation of Compliance (AOC).
