The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) relies on approved PCI Qualified Security Assessors (PCI QSA) to help organizations reduce the risk of card data loss, breaches, and liability to each of the major card brands (American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard, and Visa Inc.).

We Provide complete PCI QSA Services designed to help organizations of all sizes better protect and validate adherence to various and/or multiple compliance requirements.

Praetorian Secure provides PCI QSA Services such as assessments and consulting services to help organizations understand and improve their cardholder data environment (CDE) security posture in relation to PCI DSS.

Praetorian Secure's Compliance Reporting

In addition to PCI QSA Services, Praetorian Secure provides PCI QSA consulting and QSA reporting services for the purpose of attesting PCI compliance. Our team will supplement your resources and integrate seamlessly with your team to make meeting the data security requirement easier.

Each of the payment brands set compliance level requirements based on the number of transactions, origin of operation (multiple countries/regions), and if an entity has been previously compromised. Validating how and where payment card data is processed, transmitted and stored can only occur after the merchant and/or service provider has implemented the PCI DSS Requirements and a formal assessment has taken place.

Hiring a certified Qualified Security Assessor is required for proper PCI validation and submission of documentation for PCI compliance. Whether your organization has a specific compliance requirement or is seeking guidance on finding the right compliance guideline to follow, our QSA services are designed to support your needs.
