Compliance Consulting with PCI PIN Security Standard
Consulting that consists of the accompaniment and audit to present the compliance of an organization on the PIN Security Standard. This service is designed to support organizations to demonstrate their level of compliance whether they have complied with the standard previously or not. It is important to mention that not everyone can support in this type of services since to perform a legitimate audit, you must not only have personnel certified as Quality PIN Assessor (QPA), but also the organization must be a QPA company authorized by the Payment Card Industry Council.
Why is it important
Any organization that handles PIN passwords must be in compliance with the PCI PIN Security Standard (whether or not personally requested by the PCI Council). However, it is recognized that it is a very specific standard and that complying with what is requested within it is not an easy task. This service supports organizations from the beginning of the PCI PIN Security compliance process to the final compliance audit. This audit will be crucial because once approved, evidence of compliance can be presented to the Board.
