PCI DSS Gap Analysis


We verify compliance with relevant PCI DSS requirements. This enables you to detect deviations from the PCI DSS standard at an early stage and correct them before the official PCI DSS certification takes place.


We recommend the PCI DSS gap analysis for:

  • initial PCI DSS certification where the PCI DSS scope is already known
  • significant changes to already certified PCI DSS scope
  • version change of PCI DSS standard

Distinction from PCI DSS certification

The depth of testing is generally lower than that of a PCI DSS certification (PCI DSS Audit) and serves as preparation. No official verification documents (AoC & RoC) are issued.

The PCI DSS gap analysis is carried out by our auditors in the form of an on-site appointment. On your premises, we verify your compliance with PCI DSS requirements. In close coordination with you, we determine how exactly to proceed.


PCI DSS requirements are validated mainly through interviews with your employees with relevant responsibilities and a document analysis. Upon request, we will check your relevant IT systems and applications and carry out an on-site inspection of your premises.


Deviations from the PCI DSS standard are documented for you in a detailed catalogue of measures to correct the identified deviations.
We are happy to advise and assist you in correcting these deviations.
