What’s Included in Your PCI Assessment?
Our QSAs will help determine your PCI compliance scope and your compliance requirements including – reporting requirements such as a Self-Assessment Questionnaire or a Report on Compliance, and Penetration testing and/or Approved Scanning Vendor or ASV Scans.
Our PCI compliance analysts will conduct interviews, control walkthroughs, and review documentation and control artifacts to assess compliance to PCI DSS requirements. With PCI-compliant penetration testing, they are able to spot vulnerabilities in applications and systems. We also perform internal and external scanning with an ASV scanner in fulfillment of requirement 11.
Our QSAs will assess your organization’s security measures and identify gaps in compliance with the PCI DSS Requirements and report the gaps to management.
Our QSAs will provide guidance on remediating gaps in compliance with the PCI DSS standard and can also provide remediation assistance as desired.
Our QSAs will complete the Report on Compliance, the Attestation of Compliance, as required. We deliver independent validation of PCI DSS compliance and a ROC that can be submitted to an acquirer or one of the card associations (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB).
PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ)
If only an SAQ is required, we can provide assistance in selecting the appropriate SAQ and advise on completion as needed.
