PCI DSS
All businesses that accept, process, and store customer card data should protect it from theft and fraud. At CyberAccord, we help organizations achieve PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance.
PCI DSS requirements
If your organization processes payment cards, then it should be compliant with the PCI DSS compliance regulations. PCI DSS compliance requirements are based on 6 key goals. They include:
R

Maintenance of a vulnerability management program

R

Implementation of strong access control measures

R

Protection of cardholder data

R

Maintenance of an information security policy

R

Building and maintaining a secure network

R

Regular monitoring and testing of network

What is PCI DSS?
The PCI DSS is a set of organizational and technical requirements to protect cardholders’ data against theft and fraud through robust security. All organizations that intend to accept card payments should undertake an annual PCI DSS audit. This audit covers authentication, access management, encryption, and retention.
How Cyber Accord Helps Achieve PCI DSS Compliance
Achieving PCI DSS compliance is no mean feat. The numerous requirements can be elusive, and many organizations struggle with them. At Cyber Accord, we help organizations achieve PCI DSS compliance requirements through the following:
How Cyber Accord Helps Achieve PCI DSS Compliance
Organizations that handle card data should track and monitor their network resources and customer data. Log monitoring and management form a critical part of the PCI DSS, helping you identify anomalies in the network. At Cyber Accord, we deploy and configure advanced security technologies that perform log monitoring. These tools create logs to record event origination, timestamp, user IDs, system components, and much more.
At Cyber Accord, we provide PCI DSS self-assessments to help organizations prepare for the actual audits. We evaluate the organization’s network configurations, procedures, and security policies against the compliance requirements. We also perform the required on-site assessments so the organization can submit its Attestation of Compliance (AOC).

PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQs)
Organizations with 1 to 6 million annual card transactions are required to do annual self-assessments through the PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQs). At Cyber Accord, we help you understand the various SAQ requirements and fill the respective questionnaires before you can submit them. Our team of certified security assessors helps answer the various questionnaires diligently, ensuring all eventualities are covered. We can guide your organization through these SAQs:
PCI DSS SAQs are lengthy and technical and can be time-consuming. Our SAQ approach is designed to help save time and money and ensures your organization doesn’t miss critical aspects that may lead to compliance gaps.
PCI DSS Control Gap Analysis
At Cyber Accord, we review the organization’s cardholder data environments against the PCI DSS standards and check any areas that need to be attended. This analysis provides a detailed report of your current security posture against what’s required for compliance.
Vulnerability Scanning and Penetration Testing
At Cyber Accord, we perform regular penetration testing and vulnerability assessment to ensure your network is free from security threats. Our assessment and testing process is designed to complement other business processes and help make informed decisions. Through this analysis, we identify deficient controls, determine ways to implement the necessary security controls, and assess your organization’s readiness for upcoming audits. This helps the organization implement the necessary requirements and avoid the consequences of audit failure.
