PCI DSS Consultancy Services

Our PCI Qualified Security Assessors (QSAs) provide experience and practical advice to help you improve your current security programme and meet the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).


How IT Governance can help

The proliferation of hardware and software in the payments ecosystem is driving the demand for a more technical cyber security partner to provide advice on meeting tougher requirements, while still serving as a business partner and improving your long-term security posture. Our consultants can support:

  • Scope reduction;
  • Gap analysis;
  • Policy documentation;
  • Procedure development and documentation;
  • Technical solution design; and
  • Self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) completion.

A pathway to success

Our QSAs will lead you through the PCI DSS journey and help build requirements into everyday business processes to ensure continual compliance and ease the burden at annual QSA audits.

Assess your current PCI DSS compliance posture and produce a strategic roadmap that can be implemented to achieve full compliance with the Standard.

A PCI DSS gap analysis will help your organisation pass the annual audit and is a starting point for defining and implementing a security strategy.

Retain compliance once it has been achieved.

PCI DSS remediation can be both time consuming and resource intensive. A well-structured and proven PCI remediation plan significantly helps organisations reduce the time and cost needed to achieve compliance.

Identify the right SAQ to complete and achieve full PCI DSS compliance.

PCI DSS SAQs can make compliance easier for organisations with lower transaction volumes, but it’s helpful to have the guidance of PCI DSS industry experts to ensure your responses are in line with each requirement.

A fully documented PCI DSS Report on Compliance (RoC) that is accepted by your business partners.

A PCI DSS RoC is required by organisations with large transaction volumes and must be conducted by a QSA who will issue a formal report to the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to attest that your organisation is in full compliance.

"IT Governance were very professional and pragmatic in their approach, and displayed a level of understanding of our business that we found unique and refreshing.” Damien Everard, COO of Appletree.
