PCI DSS Compliance Assessments

We have a keen understanding of the challenge businesses face in passing compliance assessments and remaining compliant over time. Our PCI DSS compliance assessment services are designed to keep your costs and level of effort down while making it easy to stay compliant year after year.

Your Path to Achieving PCI DSS Compliance

Our clients have two primary concerns when it comes to PCI DSS compliance: time and value. MegaplanIT’s PCI DSS Plus program is an all-in-one solution for PCI compliance designed specifically to address these concerns.

Our bundled compliance solution takes a streamlined approach both on and off-site to get your business ready for its next assessment and keep you compliant all year round. Our expert QSAs know how to effectively implement the processes your organization needs to protect cardholder data and keep sensitive information secure.

Our PCI DSS Compliance Assessment Includes:

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 with 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.
