PCI Readiness

Determine your current state of PCI compliance and readiness to undergo a formal QSA audit or complete the appropriate Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). Valorr helps you to understand areas of noncompliance and develop a formal strategy to maintain compliance across the enterprise.

PCI Readiness Assessment

Organizations that accept credit card payments must comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS), a set of requirements intended to protect the security of cardholder data. The penalties for noncompliance are steep and include fines, elevated transaction fees, reputational damage, and, finally, an inability to accept credit card payments.

As businesses and compliance obligations evolve, confusion arises around PCI requirements. Valorr makes the process less daunting by providing prioritized, concrete remediation recommendations to help you achieve and sustain compliance.

Our Approach

Our readiness assessment is built to align with regulatory requirements and enhanced with industry-recognized security frameworks, including the NIST CSF, NIST 800-53, CIS Top 20, and PCI DSS. We leverage an established capability maturity model index (CMMI) to objectively evaluate your program and provide realistic maturity rankings across industry standards.
