Our range of PCI DSS compliance services, delivered by our team of qualified PCI consultants, can provide advice, reduce vulnerability management complexity and guide your company’s journey to achieving – and maintaining – PCI compliance.
What is PCI?
Any organisation that stores, processes or transmits credit card data is required by law to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
The aim of PCI DSS compliance is to provide assurance to customers and payment processors, such as Visa, Mastercard, Amex and JCB, that adequate IT security controls are in place to reduce the risk of payment card theft and fraud.
Made up of 12 requirements and 300 controls, the PCI DSS compliance standard is both prescriptive, and comprehensive and there is a risk that both small and large companies may feel overwhelmed by it.
The steps for demonstrating compliance depend on the number of annual transactions, or the merchant level of the business, varying from self-assessment, through to an annual onsite audit from an external assessor.
How can Vodat help with PCI compliance?
Whether you are a small business requiring assistance with a self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ), or a large enterprise handling millions of payments requiring support for a remediation programme, Vodat can help. Our PCI DSS consultants can:
- Define the scope of data compliance necessary. Failing to carry out this first step can lead to extended timelines and high-spend on unnecessary controls;
- Create a framework for continuous PCI DSS compliance. Compliance is often just the start; many organisations need to pass on-going attestations and PCI audits. Our framework will give you the processes and technology you need to remain compliant;
- Assess the extended threat landscape. Implementing PCI DSS to meet compliance is considered a minimum. We will approach each PCI control from the stance of a malicious attacker, eliminating one of the three elements that form any data breach – data, access and egress. We design our solutions to exceeds the standard.
