Free PDF download: PCI DSS Audits – Preparing for success
Organisations that process, transmit and/or store cardholder data, either as a merchant or as a service provider, must comply with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). They must also prove that compliance, either via an annual SAQ (self-assessment questionnaire) or third-party audit.
This paper will help organisations understand and prepare for the audit process by discussing:
- The most common audit challenge, and how to overcome it;
- How the audit process works; and
- A seven-step process to prepare for audit success.
The paper has been updated for the latest version of the Standard, PCI DSS v4.0, but much of its guidance also applies to the previous version, PCI DSS v3.2.1.
