Experienced and Efficient PCI-QSA Services at Fixed Fees
This process has been used many times for NDB's Level 1 PCI DSS clients, resulting in an efficient and cost-effective process each year. What's more, NDB's customized policy and procedure documents are an important component of this process (Phase 2), due in large part to the enormous scope requirements mandated on organizations by PCI for having these required documents in place. NDB has developed a comprehensive list of easy-to-use and easy-to-implement PCI DSS policy and procedure templates, thus saving businesses thousands of dollars and hundreds of precious man hours.
PCI DSS assessments are only going to continue to grow and expand for all types of business industries and sectors that effectively have a credible relationship or "nexus" to cardholder data. As such, entities such as data centers, managed services providers, Software as a Service (SaaS) organizations - and many others - will have to prove compliance with PCI DSS, and many times this means an actual PCI DSS Level 1 assessment by a Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor (PCI QSA). NDB's lead PCI QSA can be reached at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 705, to receive a competitive, fixed-fee proposal for PCI, or if you just have general questions regarding PCI DSS assessments and compliance.
