What is PCI Continuous Compliance?
Our PCI DSS continuous compliance service is a subscription-based service. It offers an attractive and effective method of validating for PCI-DSS and having access to a QSA during the annual cycle. You are guided through the periodic tasks, to help you to keep track of them and that they are available during the compliance period to deal with any issues or questions that come up.
Ensure your path towards PCI Compliance is smooth
To help companies validating for PCI compliance we developed our Continuous Compliance program, by implementing periodic sessions, checks and meetings to track the PCI DSS Compliance Program activities and to ensure that they are being carried out. With this service validating for PCI DSS and remaining compliant becomes much easier.
Direct PCI QSA specialized support
The service ensures the availability of a PCI consultant or QSA for any queries during the PCI maintenance management cycle. In addition, any new project or change affecting the PCI scope environment can be pre-analyzed in terms of impact and implemented with the assurance that it is aligned with the requirements of the standard.
Subscription-based service. Fixed costs
This model is based on a fixed monthly fee, so you can budget the PCI DSS project during the start of the cycle.
Periodic meetings with a PCI QSA
Periodic coordination by a QSA trains the organization’s resources involved in the dynamics of PCI management and is naturally assimilated within its performance. This is especially important in organizations without resources dedicated to this purpose. This meeting can also be used to discuss any new projects that may impact the cardholder data environment or the way payments are carried out.
PCI annual assessment at the end of the cycle
Included in the monthly fee is the annual PCI annual assessment. Either the evidence and the full SAQ is checked, or if a Report on Compliance (ROC) is needed, the full audit will be performed. This results in an Attestation of Compliance (AOC).
Ensures the feasibility of the following PCI certification
The risks of not passing the next PCI audit are minimized, as the service ensures that periodic checks have been executed correctly and in time, and that the associated results (of which evidence must be presented during the audit) are compliant with those required by PCI DSS.
Reduces PCI audit process times
Customers and/or acquiring Remediation times and efforts in evaluation processes are drastically reduced. This results in the AOCs recertification and validity deadlines being guaranteed, avoiding unnecessary tensions with entities.
Gradual reduction in the cost of service
The cost and effort associated with this service can be reduced in the following PCI certification cycles, relegating the comprehensive coordination and review required in the initial cycles to regular monitoring of PCI maintenance activities and QSA support.
