Get compliant and stay compliant.

If you’re generally familiar with the PCI DSS, but need some assistance making it to the finish line, we’re here to help. Our security and compliance experts will make your life easier by meeting you where you’re at in the process, helping you secure your business, validate compliance, and save time, hassle and money over the long term.

Our specialized services and PCI DSS experts will help you quickly identify and address your organization’s biggest security risks and their corresponding compliance gaps so you can successfully achieve and maintain PCI compliance.

IT Risk Assessment

Organizations with multiple locations or more than 50 employees should consider a professional IT risk assessment as an important step in the PCI compliance process. Our consultants will work closely with you to identify the most critical assets and functional areas within your business, individually assessing each to discover security holes and weak spots tied to the payment card data your business accepts.

PCI Gap Analysis

Our PCI Gap Analysis service is designed to give you a holistic view of your organization's current compliance state and the steps it's taking today to achieve compliance with the standard. With this valuable information in hand, it is much easier to identify any steps necessary to make your credit/debit card processing mechanisms (for example, e-commerce, Point-of-Sale [POS] terminals, call center activities, etc.) fully compliant.

PCI Remediation Assistance

Some gaps can be simple to close, while others—such as properly segmenting your IT network or installing and configuring a firewall—require specific expertise. If your business doesn’t have the resources or expertise to close the gaps identified in Step 2 above, we can help. Our status as a PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) and our team of security professionals stand ready to assist with your business’s compliance.

Security Awareness Training

The easiest way for an attacker to gain access to your business network is through the weakest link—your employees. Social engineering exploits mistakes, missteps, and the general lack of awareness of your organization when it comes to protecting critical assets like customer data. The ControlScan Security Awareness Training (SAT) service provides an ongoing program of web-based instruction across the topics that are relevant to your operations. In addition, you’ll have the visibility and control you need to ensure that the program is being followed by all your employees on an ongoing basis.

PCI Active Management

PCI Active Management delivers an expert in PCI compliance who becomes part of your IT team at a fraction of the cost of hiring a dedicated resource. The PCI Active Management engagement can be tailored to your specific needs, with the duration necessary to set a clear path to achieving and maintaining PCI compliance.

Network and Application Layer Penetration Testing

A Network and Application Layer Penetration Test simulates a real-world attack against your network infrastructure and information systems to identify vulnerabilities and risks which may impact the confidentiality, integrity or availability of your data. It’s imperative to conduct a penetration test regularly if your environment is processing and storing sensitive data (like payment card data or protected health information) and those same systems have access to the Internet.

Web Application Security Testing

Vulnerabilities and exposures related to web application security top the list of security threats that organizations face each year. If your organization conducts e-commerce transactions or carries out other online business involving sensitive customer/patient data, you should be concerned by the security of your web presence.

Social Engineering

Social engineers often use deceit, coercion or pretexting to gain access to sensitive information or areas of a facility that are off-limits. Performing a social engineering engagement is one of the best ways to test your employees' understanding of organizational policies and identify where risk remains and must be addressed.

PCI 1-2-3 Self-Assessment

While PCI compliance is an ongoing business process, every organization is required to validate its compliance once a year. The self-validation process includes completion of a self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ), reports of passing vulnerability scans, and other supporting documentation (based on SAQ type). Our PCI 1-2-3 program significantly simplifies the annual validation and reporting process with a suite of cloud-based solutions.

Breach Protection Program

Whether you’re still putting your security measures in place, or you think you have all your bases covered, there’s no such thing as “100% secure.” The ControlScan Breach Protection Program provides a low-cost way to gain peace of mind, learn how to protect your business and prepare for the worst. Level 3 and Level 4 merchants are eligible to be reimbursed for up to $50,000 or $100,000 for expenses incurred related to suspected or actual breach. You also have access to a quarterly newsletter and other educational material that provide valuable information on breach prevention.
