Meet the Team!
Meet Delaney! 👋
Delaney Hertlein is the Global Demand Generation Manager at Vanta. She started in September 2020 and has been working in B2B SaaS marketing for five years.
Tell us about your role at Vanta.
Being the first marketer at Vanta, I had the chance to start our marketing foundation from scratch. From building and refining a mix of channels for Vanta (digital advertising, podcasts, webinars, newsletters, email, events… to name a few), to purchasing Hubspot and building our marketing operations foundation (lead flow, attribution, measurement, etc), I’ve done a little bit of everything for the growth side of marketing.
What made you realize this was the right career field for you?
My first job out of college was at a staffing agency and part of that role included cold calling local SF companies. I loathed cold calling the grumpy decision makers, but enjoyed the challenge of getting them to come to me through scraped-together marketing efforts, such as email blasts and direct mail. After success with these efforts, I decided to transition to a more formalized marketing role. I love this field because I get to be creative, data driven, and work cross functionally with GTM and Product teams alike.
Why did you choose Vanta over other companies?
Joining a small startup felt like a risk during the pandemic, but after meeting with Christina and a few connections who worked at Vanta (shoutout to my DataFox crew), I knew that this company was going places. I’ve never seen such customer loyalty and authentic excitement - Vanta’s solves a pain unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.
What excites you about Vanta’s product?
Vanta’s product has done something magical for Founders, CTOs, and compliance professionals alike - it’s given them precious time back to focus on growing their business. Until you go through a lengthy compliance audit yourself, you won’t truly understand the unnecessary stress it can cause. I’m thrilled that Vanta has maintained that value prop while adding on more compliance standards. We’re building a category and that’s something every Vantan can be proud of.
What do you like best about working from home?
Working from home meant that I could fulfill my dream of living in Lake Tahoe without sacrificing my career trajectory. Outside of work, you can find me standup paddle boarding, working on my tennis skills, coaching lacrosse, skiing, mountain biking, and hiking with my husband and dog. I miss the office environment - there is something special about those conversations at the “water cooler” and during lunchtime, so I make a point to get to San Francisco as often as I can.

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.

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
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).
