PCI DSS Remediation Assistance

Help from our QSA team with specific compliance issues, helping to bring your organisation into full compliance with the PCI DSS.

Get help with remediation

Focus on and fix specific areas of non-compliance

The PCI DSS is an ‘absolute standard’ and both merchants and service providers are expected to achieve and maintain full compliance. However, most organisations know that occasionally, things go wrong.

Our PCI DSS QSA team is on-hand to guide you through the remediation process, working closely with your technical and business teams to implement proportionate, risk-based, and compliant fixes.

Your dedicated PCI DSS QSA will act as a trusted advisor, and by working closely with your team, our assessor will help you to understand the letter and intent of each PCI requirement and control objective.

Our QSA team has helped retail brands, payment service providers, and FTSE 100 and 250 companies (including commercial and domestic energy) remediate compliance issues, so we’re well-placed to help you.

Our work and expertise with the PCI DSS

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was developed to enhance cardholder data security measures across the world. The PCI DSS provides a baseline for your technical and operational controls designed to protect your customer’s payment data.

The PCI DSS applies to all entities involved in payment card processing, including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers. The PCI DSS also applies to all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data.

To guide our clients through the extensive requirements of the PCI DSS, we maintain a dedicated team of PCI DSS Qualified Security Assessors (QSA). Our QSA team is engaged by retail brands, payment service providers, and FTSE 100 companies (including commercial and domestic energy), to provide experienced Qualified Security Assessors that understand complex technical environments in fast-paced industries.

Our team has vast operational experience with modern technologies, including containerised and virtualised environments, and is used to providing security advice to everybody from first line support, through to the C-Suite.

Alongside our delivery work, we frequently publish security articles, white papers, and case studies, as well as evidence for research and government.

Crucially, we believe that rationalised information assurance policies – driven by evidence and data, rather than hyperbole and fear – are the best way to improve our clients’ security capabilities.
