PCI DSS Compliance
Professional Assessments and Advice for Businesses that Manage Credit Card Information
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) applies to companies of any size that accept credit card payments. These security standards help decrease internet payment card fraud. Only assessments completed by an approved PCI QSA are recognized by Payment Card brands.
If your company intends to accept card payments and store, process or transmit cardholder data, you will need to assure that data is secure with a PCI compliant hosting provider.
Compliance Doesn’t Have to be Complicated
We help your organization understand its unique path to achieving and maintaining compliance. Our strategic approach helps you minimize costs, as well as the organizational resources that you’ll need to invest.
We’ll help you identify, leverage, and document the policies and practices that you already have in place. From there, we’ll identify reasonable IT and business solutions that can help you meet the PCI Data Security Standard.
Our assessments are conducted through a combination of on-site and remote methods. During the planning phase, we’ll help you determine a reasonable approach and timeline. We’ll work with your stakeholders and control owners to ensure a mutual understanding of scope; help you determine the most cost-effective way to remediate any issues; and complete the necessary testing to verify that your organization meets the six security principles of PCI.
- Build and Maintain a Secure Network and Systems
- Protect Stored Cardholder Data
- Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
- Implement Strong Access Control Measures
- Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
- Maintain an Information Security Policy
Our PCI DSS Services
The 360 Advanced team provides the following PCI DSS compliance services:
PCI DSS Readiness Assessments
Our team of QSAs will deliver PCI guidance with a risk-based approach. Onsite, we will validate your compliance goals and help you define the scope and boundaries of your cardholder data environment. You will be left with a PCI DSS Prioritized Approach workbook to track to your remediation efforts and a timeline to achieve compliance.
Report on Compliance (ROC)
The proof is in the…ROC. This is the report of over 200 PCI requirements produced from the on-site fieldwork, evidence inspection, and team interviews performed by a QSA. The QSA assigned to conduct your assessment will guide you through this process. The PCI DSS assessment includes a detailed review of your organization’s cardholder data environment and most importantly, documents the details of your compliance with PCI DSS.
Where remediation is needed to achieve, or maintain PCI compliance, our QSAs will help guide that process. During a PCI Readiness Assessment or a PCI Compliance Assessment, when we find areas of non-compliance, we will sit down with your team to review. We will help you determine the root cause of the non-compliance, identify possible solutions to achieve compliance, and help you establish a project plan and timeline to remediate. As you work through your remediation activities our team will be available to review progress and help ensure efforts are on the right-track to achieve compliance.
Consulting and Reporting
PCI QSAs are required to have years of hands-on I.T. security technical expertise in addition to holding at least two industry certifications on both Information Security and Audit prior to being considered for the rigorous PCI QSA training. Our team of professionals has breadth and depth of experience protecting data and takes seriously the call to ensure our clients are doing everything required, if not more, to protect the cardholder data they process, store, or transmit. We strive to deliver not just a report, but an understanding of your business so that we can partner to move your business forward.
We can provide the required quarterly external vulnerability scans through a trusted, Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) business partner.
See what our clients are saying about us.
I think the strength of SSA16 accreditation compliance has been such an advantage for us, allowing us to improve our processes, provide oversight and have our customers see the difference. The SOC examination has exceeded our wildest dreams. We are communicating this as part of our sales process and now it’s a requirement in nearly all the RFPs. We’ve won every single bid we submitted on since we received compliance. We think that is the key differentiator.
Audit Services Company
360 Advanced showed great professionalism as it relates to getting acquainted with a very unique industry like ours, the school transportation industry. We know that’s not easy and we appreciate all the extra effort that was put into learning about us and our industry. We’re extremely pleased with the service.
The one thing that sticks out more than anything else is the audit readiness they provide before the audit process starts. I appreciated the coaching and mentoring we received so we were well prepared for the audit. 360 Advanced always answer their phones, whether for quick issues or questions. And, they are not nickel and diming us – we paid one fee and they are still assisting us post audit.
