PCI DSS compliance can be an arduous undertaking for many service providers and merchants in today’s business arena. Add to the fact the many organizations are unsure of the roadmap for PCI DSS compliance, it makes sense to hire a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) in helping you conduct a PCI DSS Readiness Assessment.

The most important findings and deliverables out of a PCI DSS Readiness Assessment are that your organization will truly understand what the scope of the assessment process is, that is, what systems, processes, and activities are to be included.

Secondly, your organization will also have identified what gaps or weaknesses are currently in place that will need to be corrected before you can even plausibly think of becoming PCI DSS compliant.

Additionally, a host of other helpful information can be provided by a Qualified Security Assessor when undertaking a PCI DSS Readiness Assessment. To learn more about PCI compliance, visit the official PCI DSS Resource Guide.
