Payment Card Industry (PCI DSS)

Organizations that accept credit card payments must comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS), a set of requirements intended to protect the security of cardholder data. The penalties for noncompliance are steep and include fines, elevated transaction fees, reputational damage, and, finally, an inability to accept credit card payments.

As businesses and compliance obligations evolve, confusion arises around PCI requirements. Securance makes the process less daunting by providing prioritized, concrete remediation recommendations to help you achieve and sustain compliance.

How We Can Help

Our team of consultants provides the following PCI compliance services:

PCI Readiness Assessment

Securance determines your current state of PCI compliance and readiness to undergo a formal QSA audit or complete the appropriate Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). We help you to understand areas of noncompliance and develop a formal strategy to maintain compliance across the enterprise.

Penetration Testing

Securance performs a penetration test of the cardholder data environment (CDE) to identify network, web application, and operating system vulnerabilities that could expose credit card data to cyber attacks. PCI penetration tests are typically performed annually.

PCI SAQ Services

Businesses that fall within PCI Merchant Levels 2, 3, and 4 can typically self-certify against PCI DSS requirements using a SAQ form. Our consultants will determine which SAQ is appropriate and help your staff complete the questionnaire.

Ongoing Compliance Monitoring

PCI compliance is an annual process. Securance helps clients monitor compliance throughout the year and continually improve their compliance programs to avoid last-minute anxiety and pressure.


Executive-level consultants provide hands-on leadership to ensure every project is a success.

Senior resources with 20 or more years of experience don’t just lead engagements; they execute them from cradle to grave.
