PCI DSS

PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance should be a simple and straightforward assessment process, but the standard is complex. Guidance and recommendations lack clarity and finality. Just scoping the environment is challenging. Adoption of new technologies and changes to your architecture further complicate the process.

Packer Thomas helps our customers overcome these challenges, from scoping uncertainty and gap analysis to assessments, technology validation, and program strategy. As one of the original QSA firms, we have performed thousands of payment card industry (PCI) assessments. We don’t just audit for compliance. We work with our customers to align their compliance investments with broader business and security objectives.
