PCI Planning, Readiness & Compliance


Any organization that collects or processes payment card information must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).  Although compliance has improved in recent years there are still a large number of organizations who are not compliant.  In addition to significant fines, companies can be barred from processing credit card transactions and may pay higher processing fees.  In the event of a serious security breach, fines of up to $500,000 can be levied for each instance of non-compliance – not to mention damage to your reputation and probable loss of customers.  Protiviti is a PCI Security Standards Council approved global provider for the following programs:

  • Qualified Security Assessors (QSA)
  • Payment Application QSAs (PA-QSA)
  • Approved Scanning Vendors (ASV)
