What We Offer Atlanta Businesses for PCI DSS Compliance

1. Scoping & Readiness Assessments: A PCI DSS scoping & readiness assessment is essential for Atlanta, Georgia businesses new to the PCI DSS compliance mandates, as critical initiatives – such as scoping, assessing internal controls, developing a roadmap & plan of action for remediation, and more – must be performed prior to any type of certification process even beginning.

The compliance mandates put forth by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) can be incredibly challenging, complex, and time-consuming, thus it’s important to perform an upfront scoping & readiness assessment prior to your PCI certification efforts.

It doesn’t have to be done annually, but it’s highly recommended to perform this activity for any business new to the PCI DSS reporting mandates. Having a clear plan of action and knowing what the roadmap ahead is in terms of PCI DSS compliance are the true benefits of a scoping & readiness assessment, so call and speak directly with a PCI-QSA today at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 705.

2. Remediation Services: The vast majority of Atlanta merchants and service providers who are seeking to become compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) will ultimately require some form of remediation. From missing policies and procedures to incorrectly configured system settings, remediation is an essential component of PCI compliance.

NDNB provides comprehensive remediation assistance, from providing policy templates to policy writing services, technical implementation solutions, and much more. There’s simply no reason to “go it alone” when it comes to correcting internal control deficiencies related to PCI compliance – talk to the experts at NDNB today.

3. Policies and Procedures Writing: High on the list of remediation is often policies and procedures, which can become an incredibly time-consuming and arduous process, but thanks to our industry leading security policy templates, we’ve got you covered with two great options. First, you can simply obtain our policy and procedure templates – which have been written by our very own PCI-QSA – and customize them yourself, ultimately saving thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours.

Second, you can hire NDNB to author the policies for you – a service we’ve been providing since 2009 to our clients all throughout North America – also a great option that saves a tremendous amount of time.

4. Technical Remediation: Remember that the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) are a rather technical certification process, one that includes numerous I.T. mandates. Because of this, both merchants and service providers will often find themselves implementing a number of technical remediation activities, ranging from changing firewall configuration files to implementing File Integrity Monitoring, and much more.

It can be an incredibly taxing and arduous undertaking, and it’s why NDNB offers comprehensive assistance throughout the entire process, from offering hardening checklists to lists of high-quality, third-party vendors offering security software and other services. There are literally hundreds – if not more – of vendors offering products for the PCI space, so let us help you choose the right one.

5. SAQ Assistance: One of the more challenging aspects are the Self-Assessment Questionnaires, the SAQ documents, for which millions of merchants and service providers around the globe use to self-assess, can be quite challenging. The problem is that self-assessing is much easier said than done, as the documentation can be become rather cumbersome and complex, particularly the SAQ D questionnaires for merchants and service providers.

While the SAQ’s are not an official onsite assessment, they nonetheless can be difficult to complete. What’s needed is expertise guidance from a Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor – a PCI-QSA - so contact PCI-QSA us today at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 705 today.

6. Level 1 Onsite QSA Assessments: A select number of Georgia merchants and service providers will ultimately have to perform an actual Level 1 onsite assessment by a Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor (PCI-QSA). If that’s you, then consider speaking to NDNB as we’re one the leading providers of Level 1 Report on Compliance (“ROC”) assessments for Atlanta businesses.

Specifically, we’ve developed a proven methodology that allows for a high degree of efficiency – and cost savings – when it comes to PCI DSS compliance. If you can avoid Level 1 reporting with an SAQ questionnaire, then by all means do so, but some companies simply have no choice.

7. Vendor Product Selection: Many of the twelve (12) PCI DSS requirements ultimately require the use and implementation of various network tools, software agents, and other supporting technical solutions. Because of this, we’ve developed an extensive list of high-quality, cost-effective third-party providers that offer the necessary tools and services for helping become – and maintain – compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
