Vanta takes the stage at Web Summit 2022

Vanta is thrilled to join 70,000+ tech leaders and venture capitalists from across the world at Web Summit 2022—a tech conference taking place November 1-4 in Lisbon, Portugal. Web Summit 2022 is regarded as one of the most prominent and large-scale tech events of the year. 

Web Summit is not your typical conference. Yes, leading CEOs, founders, and product designers will attend, but the guest list also features policymakers, heads of state, scientists, and philosophers. What’s sure to follow is a four-day event aimed at addressing the most pressing global issues facing organizations everywhere. 

Three unique sessions at the world’s premier tech conference

Our mission to make the internet a more secure place involves transparency, specifically sharing the wins and the hard knocks. 

This year at Web Summit, Vanta’s CEO and Founder Christina Cacioppo will participate in two fireside chats and one keynote presentation. Get Christina's schedule here

Leading: triumphs and “f-ups”

Christina will divulge her experiences alongside other pundits in this revelatory fireside chat. 

Vendors are your weakest link – here’s how to fix that

Friday, November 4

When it comes to organizational security, oftentimes it's outside forces that can make or break us. Sensitive data flows back and forth between vendors, and many times, your security protocols are only as good as theirs. Christina will deliver a keynote presentation on how to navigate these relationships and what the future of vendor security looks like.

The ultimate guide to scaling your compliance program

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).
