The requirements dictated by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) standard impose technical challenges on your business that often divert valuable resources from your corporate operations. Most businesses are not staffed to take on the projects necessitated by the PCI standard.  Not only are resources scarce, especially in a tight economy, but the existing resources typically do not have the experience necessary to interpret the evolving PCI standards and implement the required technologies. STIGroup has a PCI Compliance Consulting program specifically designed to help your business address the challenge that PCI Compliance represents. Our experienced consultants will work with your team to cost-effectively take you through the PCI Compliance process:
  • Identify the scope of your technical environment relevant to PCI (and identify strategies for minimizing the scope)
  • Clearly identify the gaps in your policies, procedures, and technical implementations that require remediation
  • Define a specific action plan for the achievement of a PCI-compliant state including budgets, timelines, and resource plans.
  • Execute the required remediation tasks and complete the appropriate documentation, including policies and compensating controls
  • Walk you through the assessment and certification process, assisting with response to QSAs, Acquirers, and partner organizations.
