Foresite helps businesses develop compliant payment solutions that increase consumer confidence, provide economic stability, and scale with growth.
The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) is an open global forum that was originally launched in 2003 for developing, maintaining, and managing standards for credit card merchants and payment applications. Today, if businesses intend to process, store, and transmit credit card information, they must meet numerous requirements, known as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
PCI compliance standards apply to any company or organization that accepts, transmits, or stores cardholder data, regardless of the number of transactions. This means that many organizations require PCI compliance and should take steps to ensure that they have the proper systems in place to avoid penalties.Who must meet PCI compliance standards?
What are the PCI compliance requirements?
There are four different levels of PCI compliance requirements, based on the volume of transactions that your business will be processing. Certain standards apply to all businesses, regardless of transaction volume. All organizations must be PCI DSS compliant, which dictates regular monitoring and testing of their networks.
Most level 2 merchants and all level 1 merchants that process greater than $6 million are required to have annual audits performed by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). Additionally, any merchant that accepts information online (e-commerce) is required to complete a vulnerability scan by an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV).

PCI Compliance Testing Services
You already know that it’s critical to your business that you keep credit card data safe. Clients trust you with their personal information, and it’s essential that you do all you can to keep it protected. While this is vital for building client trust, it’s also required by law. Foresite’s Security Monitoring solutions are designed to complement your current IT resources, save your company money, and provide you with peace of mind. We work to ensure that your clients’ information is safe in a way that complies with constantly changing federal regulations. We understand how hard it can be to keep up with the ever-changing environment in the world of PCI data security, and we’re here to work on an external basis to help you manage your risk in a way that makes sense for your organization. Managed by our team of certified security analysts, our 24/7 Security Monitoring and Alerting services identify threats, mitigate future issues, and provide in-depth reporting that gives you complete visibility of your company’s data security.
We work with you to achieve complete compliance under industry regulations like PCI DSS, GLBA, NERC, CIP, and HIPAA. We’ll analyze your current security systems and talk with you in person, over the phone, or via email to come up with solutions that make sense for your organization. We understand that a PCI DSS security service is not a one size fits all system. You need a system in place that makes sense for the unique challenges you face within your business. Your security analyst will work with you to ensure that your PCI DSS service continues to meet the needs of you and your team.
PCI Penetration Testing
Our Managed Security Monitoring and Alerting service is designed to seamlessly integrate with your current business intelligence and analytics platforms to help you make better business decisions. When you’re bogged down with the day to day work to keep your business moving forward, it can be easy to assume that your PCI DSS security system is up to par with others in the industry. However, if your PCI system is not being tested regularly, you’re leaving valuable client and customer information vulnerable to hackers. While this can be devastating for your customers, it can also be devastating for your business. Once word gets out that you failed to keep customer information safe, it can take a lifetime to rebuild your organization’s reputation.
Most businesses do not have the time and/or resources to complete PCI Penetration Testing on their own. If you do happen to employ some tech wizards who are able to take on security for your data, it’s important to understand that PCI Penetration Testing can be a tedious, time-consuming process. You’ll likely want to free up your employees to work on activities that move your business forward, rather than spending valuable working hours on PCI Penetration Testing. When you outsource for testing, you’re letting your employees do what they do best, while allowing us at Foresite to do what we do best.
