Streamline Your PCI -DSS Audits With Supportive Advisors

We have a keen understanding of the challenge businesses face in passing compliance assessments and remaining compliant over time. Our PCI compliance assessment services are designed to keep your costs and level of effort down while making it easy to stay compliant year after year. You will receive one on one support from an industry-certified advisor who will help you through each step of the audit process. 

Service Overview

Our Hassle-Free Assessments

Staying compliant with industry standards and compliance requirements can be a real headache. To make matters worse, many assessment providers rely on check-box processes and provide inexperienced QSAs with no resource consistency from year to year. Below are some of the steps we take to make your audit process hassle-free. 

Two QSAs Per Assessment

We assign a primary and secondary QSA to every PCI-DSS assessment, so you can always reach a compliance expert when you need one. Our policy of assigning two QSAs provides greater flexibility with your schedule and more accurate compliance reports.​

Free PCI-DSS Gap Analysis

To help prepare your organization for the most recent iteration of the PCI-DSS standards, we compare your cardholder environment’s current security controls against the revised requirements and provide an analysis that includes a list of controls that will need to be updated or replaced. This saves time and costs by identifying exactly which services your business needs.

Policies and Procedures Development

Our policy and procedures assistance will alleviate the headaches (and costly mistakes) that many business owners run into while trying to develop these technical documents. Bundling this service with your PCI-DSS assessment will save you significant time and money.

Trusted Advisory and Remediation

Included Trusted Advisory and Remediation means that MegaplanIT will advise you of any system changes made throughout the year that might affect your PCI compliance status. This service may reduce the time and cost of your PCI assessment year after year!

PCI Compliance Project Management

Our compliance project management service monitors compliance deadlines and tracks the completion of milestones throughout the assessment. While our QSAs are conducting your assessment, our management team aligns the necessary resources to facilitate an on-time completion of your final report.

How It Works

Step By Step Assessment

Step One
Review Project Scope
The first step is to initiate a kick-off that will include reviewing the MegaplanIT PCI Assessment Process, determine your scope and explain what documents will need to be collected. Our goal is to save you time so that your normal day workload will not be impeded on while you are in the assessment process.
Step One
Step Two
Policy & Procedure Collection, Analysis, and Control Validation
At the beginning of this process, a MegaplanIT QSA will create an assessment folder specifically for your organization, which will be housed on our secure, centralized server. This folder will contain all the documents received during the PCI assessment process.
Step Two
Step Three
PCI DSS Gap Analysis - Pre Assessment
A MegaplanIT consultant will become and extention of your team, both on- and off-site to assess and control risks related to your unique environment. MegaplanIT will identify the specific PCI DSS regulations that apply to your business and focus on taking the proper steps needed to bring your cardholder environment into compliance. This "Pre-Assessment" gives us a picture of your existing strengths and weakness and can help reduce the scope and cost of your final PCI DSS Assessment
Step Three
Step Four
On-Site Validation & Draft Report On Compliance
The completion of the Validation and Draft Report on Compliance Requires that the QSA visits your organization's location to validate all the existing controls. THis will be accomplished by sampling live systems, databases, network devices, and applications that were determined to be in-scope for PCI Compliance. A MegaplanIT QSA will also collect follow-up evidence such as sample reports and/or captured screen prints, which will validate that security controls are in place and compliant with PCI Requirements.
Step Four
Step Five
Quality Assurance Program & Delivery of Final Report

Before submitting any reports to you the QSA must first pass their work through our quality assurance program. This requires a detailed review and validation of all the items to find within the report on compliance and attestation of compliance. If there or any discovered errors or unclear remarks the QA representative will ensure that there is a proper amount of detail that is contained in the documents as governed by the PCI council. 

The documents required to pass through the megaplanit: 

  • PCI assessment tracking tool (used to gather notes)
  • Draft report on compliance
  • attestation of compliance 
  • Internal and external scan results
  • Internal and external penetration testing results

 

Upon completion of the QA process, the managing consultant and QSA will forward hard and soft copies of the final PCI report on compliance to your organization's representative. With these files in hand Megaplanit, senior gateway manager and principal compliance consultant will schedule a remote call with your representative to review any additional comments within the final PCI report on compliance. To further improve on The client and assessor relationship the MegaplanIT team will hear any feedback that your representative may have.
