PCI Compliance Services

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requires organizations that store, process, or transmit payment card data to protect cardholder data (CHD) by complying to PCI DSS standards. 

Intersec offers clients on-going PCI compliance services. From Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for logging, encryption, or tokenization to working with PCI gaps, we offer the best PCI compliance service in the industry. Many of our clients utilize PCI compliance consulting services annually or semi-annually to meet their deadlines or objectives and to avoid unnecessary fines for non-compliance. Of course, compliance also reduces the risk of a potentially devastating credit card data breach.

Intersec Worldwide’s PCI compliance services can help you meet standards and protect customers from a PCI breach.

If a problem is uncovered, Intersec provides the solutions. All too often, cybersecurity firms will help you identify risks but aren’t able to implement the remedies you need. At Intersec, we are one of the few PCI compliance consulting firms that are also highly experienced in incident response deployment and customized remediation services. Our PCI compliance services include the expertise of our PCI Qualified Security Assessors (QSA). As a PCI QSA company, Intersec has been qualified by the PCI Security Standards Council to validate an entity’s adherence to PCI DSS.

Features of Intersec’s PCI Compliance Services

The work required to become PCI Data Security Standard compliant can seem complex and daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. You can achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance in the following steps:

  1. GAP analysis – Identify needs and deficiencies.

  2. Remediation – Address deficiencies.

  3. PCI Assessment (Audit) – Pass or fail audits are required annually.

  4. Compliance Monitoring – The only way to remain secure.

PCI Gap Analysis

The PCI Gap Analysis is a key component of our PCI compliance services as it provides a complete assessment of your organization’s readiness for your annual PCI Onsite Audit. During the GAP Analysis, Intersec’s PCI QSA’s will do a thorough review of your Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliance preparedness, and identify the steps needed to achieve full PCI Compliance.

During the GAP Analysis, Intersec assessors will discover, analyze, and report on all system areas that pertain to PCI compliance. We then provide a comprehensive set of deliverables that verifies the current status of PCI requirements. Additionally, we define specific control objectives and provide a clear overview of the project. We don’t stop there. We stand by you throughout the process, addressing your every need and concern, while making sure each step goes smoother than you ever thought possible.

PCI Gap Analysis Benefits:

  • Experienced professionals complete both remediation and assessment services.

  • Preparation for annual on-site audit.

PCI Data Security Assessment: Your Annual Audit

The Security Assessment (often called a Security Audit or PCI Audit) is a required procedure that must be performed by an independent Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). Intersec is one of the leading independent QSAs, and we provide you with the most informative and efficient audit process possible. Your bank or your card brand will notify you in the event this audit is required for you.

The Security Assessment process is very similar to the Gap Analysis. When the audit is complete, the QSA will produce the final report. At the direction of the client, the QSA will submit the final report to the acquiring bank or card brand as well as the PCI Security Standards Council.

As with all phases of the process, we want to be your partner. As the industry leaders in experience and expertise, let us meet your PCI data security standard assessment and compliance needs.

PCI Compliance Monitoring: The Only Way to Stay Secure

While becoming PCI compliant is ideal, staying PCI compliant is just good business. Just like your security, a reactive policy is often the one that results in the most damage and highest costs. Falling out of compliance can be as bad as being breached—your business could be shut down at its lifeline.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Intersec offers affordable solutions to ensure you are both proactively secure and compliant via our Compliance Monitoring (CM) program. 

Through the CM program, we provide you with the methodology, experience, and tools to be successful in achieving your compliance monitoring needs, all at a price point that doesn’t break the bank.
