PCI DSS consultancy

PCI DSS compliance can be daunting for organisations with little or no knowledge of the Standard. IT Governance’s PCI DSS consultants can produce a structured framework, agreed from the outset with your organisation, that ensures the effective use of in-house resources as well as expenditure control. At points when you need help, IT Governance can provide assistance in the compliance process, relieving pressure while enabling organisations to continue business operations effectively.

IT Governance is a PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) company. Find out about our QSA services here >>>


Typical PCI DSS consultancy stages

IT Governance provides a range of services to help organisations comply with the PCI DSS, whatever their service level or the stage their project has reached .

Whether you require an ROC audit or support completing an SAQ (usually SAQ B-IP, SAQ-C, SAQ C-VT, SAQ-D or SAQ P2P), our experts are on hand.

We can help with any or all of the following stages of a PCI DSS implementation project:

  1. PCI DSS scoping and gap analysis

    First, the gap analysis stage compares where your organisation currently stands with where it needs to be in order to meet the full requirements of the Standard. We will identify where cardholder data is stored, processed or transmitted within your environment, and determine your cardholder data environment (CDE) – your ‘scope’ for PCI DSS compliance. At this early stage we can work with you to reduce the scope, ultimately resulting in reduced resources and expenditure.

  2. Implementation and remediation

  3. When the gap analysis stage has been completed, we can assist in the design and implementation of a PCI DSS project team within your organisation, which will ultimately be responsible for undertaking the remediation work to achieve compliance. This will save you having to contract external remediation consultants. Of course, IT Governance can be on hand to attend regular checkpoint meetings to ensure that the project remains focused and on track. We can also provide support with the creation of the relevant documentation required for compliance (e.g. policies and procedures).

  4. PCI compliance audit and Report on Compliance (ROC)

  5. IT Governance will undertake a QSA audit to conduct a thorough assessment of the controls you have implemented and to establish whether they meets the requirements of the PCI DSS.

  6. Maintenance and continual improvement

  7. We can also offer support to help you maintain and continually improve your PCI compliance, whether with penetration testing, documentation templates or staff training. See below for links to our other PCI DSS services.
