SAS 70 audits and PCI DSS Assessments are on everybody’s radar screen today, or though it seems. Particularly, SAS 70 Type II Audits and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) Level I assessments.
And why? Because many service organizations, merchants, and service providers are being asked to become compliant with either a SAS 70 audit, a PCI DSS Assessment or both, for purposes of today’s regulatory compliance initiatives. Take note, Nevada just passed provisions of PCI into law, joining Minnesota as another state that is taking security and privacy to a new level.
I’ve put together a comprehensive white paper on SAS 70 Type II audits and PCI DSS Level 1 assessments that is definitely good reading material if your organization has to become compliant with either of these.
