PCI-DSS Compliance & Consulting

Theft of credit card information due to various breaches is a phenomenon that has become more prominent in the past few years amongst financial institutions, gaming companies, insurance organisations and more. These thefts cause immense financial damage, loss of capital due to leakage of IP and customer data and high operational cost of recovering the businesses’ reputation and network.

In order to eradicate this trend, credit card companies have joined together to create a data security credit card standard called PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). Corporations, who transfer, store, process, or forward credit card details need to be regulated according to this standard in order to be licensed by the International Regulatory Committee. Under this definition, all businesses, service providers, 3rd parties and accrues need to adopt this standard.

Performanta has vast experience in supporting organisations from the initial gap analysis stage, the advice stage, through to hands-on solutions with a holistic approach taking all relevant business parts into consideration to provide an efficient security solution for the organisation, leading to full compliance and certification.

ISO 27001-2:2013

In today’s enterprise computing environment, with its dependence on a complex ecosystem of physical, virtual, cloud-based servers and storage, it is more important than ever that the business environment of the organisation has a robust information security management system (ISMS).

Although it is possible to put together ISMS on your own, how can you be sure the end result is secure and cost-effective? Remembering you require a system that keeps tabs on your information and quantifies the degree of risk to it from outside threats, internal threats, processes and other factors that exist in your environment. Ideally, an ISMS solution will be risk-based, providing security that is based on a scientific assessment of risk and delivering just the right degree of security without over-engineering and overspending.

Designing and implementing an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS is a significant task. Involving specialised experts in that process is highly recommended.

  • Identify security risk exposure
  • Derive security requirements
  • Define the necessary security controls, processes, and procedures within the ISMS
