PCI Risk Assessment

Optiv's comprehensive PCI consulting services help simplify PCI risk assessment and enable businesses to get more from their compliance programs.

Simplify Your Annual PCI Risk Assessment

For organizations managing compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the annual PCI risk assessment presents a number of challenges. Preparing for the assessment can time- and resource-intensive, especially as PCI requirements evolve and compliance teams must continually absorb new regulations. It's critical to have the proper staff in place to support a PCI risk assessment, but finding talent with deep PCI expertise can be difficult. Ensuring compliance is critical to protecting the organization and its customers, but the demands of the assessment can easily overwhelm compliance teams that are struggling to keep pace with a wide variety of regulatory frameworks.


Optiv can help. As a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), we offer PCI consulting services to help streamline ongoing compliance maintenance and to conduct an official on-site PCI risk assessment to validate compliance.
