Your PCI officer

Build know-how yourself or get external expertise?

As a service provider, you are obliged by the requirement 12.4.1 of the PCI DSS to appoint an individual who is responsible for your PCI compliance and who will comprehensively manage the issue for you. Experience, PCI DSS expertise and time are prerequisites for this. As with many formal roles, the question arises: Should you build up competence internally or obtain it from external sources as required? As a Qualified Security Assessor Company, we would be happy to provide you with one of our experienced experts as your PCI Officer.

Required for service providers –
valuable for all organizations

Although the PCI DSS requirement 12.4.1 is only mandatory for service providers, it offers great added value as a guideline for all companies that pursue a holistic approach to security. Aligning your security strategy with explicit requirements facilitates a higher level of protection for sensitive customer data.
