Vanta announces two new female VPs

Vanta is thrilled to be expanding its C-suite with two new hires: Meg Goetsch as VP of Operations and Finance, who hails from Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Nicole Zuuring as VP of Marketing, who is joining from UiPath. With Meg and Nicole on board, we’ve hit a milestone few tech companies ever achieve: Women now make up two-thirds of Vanta’s leadership team.

Meg brings 15 years of experience scaling high-growth businesses, most recently serving as an Operations Leader in AWS’s Business Development and Strategic Industries group. At Vanta, she’ll be responsible for driving revenue growth and customer acquisition. Meg is based in New York, where she advises startup founders as a member of Primary VC’s Primary Expert Network.

Nicole comes to us from UiPath, where she operated at the nexus of Sales and Marketing as VP of Customer and Partner Experience. Previously she spearheaded marketing and operations at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins and led outbound marketing at Dropbox. Nicole started her career at Salesforce, where she rose through the marketing ranks over nearly a decade.

Meg and Nicole started last month and will be integral to supporting Vanta’s rapid growth. We’re on a roll hiring top-flight talent across the board, including in our executive ranks. Vanta also recently welcomed Stevie Case as our first Chief Revenue Officer.

Women in tech hold less than 28% of the leadership positions, despite clear and growing evidence that diverse teams contribute to better financial outcomes.

According to a McKinsey study, "Women leaders are up to twice as likely to spend substantial time on DEI work that falls outside their formal job responsibilities." Earlier this year Vanta announced a partnership with Breakline, which helps diverse job candidates get education and training to move into careers in the tech sector.

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.

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).
