Helping you comply with the payment card industry data security standard

Organizations that accept credit or debit cards as a form of payment must comply with requirements set by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council. Noncompliance carries numerous risks, including fines, higher transaction fees, reputational harm and a loss of banking relationships.

Ensuring compliance can be complex and daunting. RSM’s PCI services help businesses achieve and maintain compliance through a variety of methods. These include gap assessments and penetration testing, as well as vulnerability assessments against your cardholder data (CHD) environment, which RSM is authorized to perform as a PCI-approved scanning vendor.

Does PCI compliance apply to my organization?

Any business that stores, processes, accesses or transmits payment cards or payment card data as a merchant or service provider is required to comply with PCI standards. Compliance significantly reduces the risk of consumers’ CHD being compromised by cyberattacks.

The RSM approach

RSM’s PCI services are multifaceted, but we always begin by asking you to describe the changes you believe your company needs and the most efficient approach to making them. Our team begins the process with a thorough analysis of your business’s current cardholder data (CHD) procedures, and then develops recommendations for improvements. Our key services include:

In this step we identify known network, operating system, web application, and server exploits and vulnerabilities on specified internet-enabled devices and applications by using automated tools in accordance with the PCI data security standard (DSS). Once these issues are identified, we can assist you in remediating them.

While these services are all available individually, many of our clients utilize multiple services to ensure they meet or exceed minimum compliance requirements.
