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.
