PCI DSS Compliance Made Simple by Pondurance

Hundreds of millions of people worldwide pay for goods and services with credit or debit cards every day. Any organization working with cardholder data (CHD) must implement security policies, technology, and processes to ensure its systems are protected from breach and theft of CHD. Because of the critical nature of this data and the potential impact it can have on the lives of so many, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was established to regulate protection standards for merchants, financial institutions, point-of-sale vendors, and technology developers that create and operate the global infrastructure for processing payments. Compliance with PCI DSS is mandatory for these businesses and costly for those who violate the standards (even if they do so unknowingly).

As part of Pondurance’s cyber risk and regulatory compliance assessment services, we offer a focused review of your IT systems environment to identify areas of risk and maturity as they relate to PCI DSS compliance. At the conclusion of the assessment, Pondurance either conducts a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) or delivers a Report on Compliance (ROC) accompanied by an Attestation of Compliance (AoC). If your organization is out of compliance, we offer a tailored, prioritized approach to helping you get compliant quickly.


The Pondurance PCI DSS Assessment is conducted by our team of security experts, partnering directly with you to guide you through the process. A team of Pondurance experts embeds with your multidisciplinary teams and analyzes your current PCI DSS compliance posture, documenting our results in the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) SAQ or ROC template. This outlines a set of desired outcomes for proper handling of CHD with categorized references to how they can be achieved.

Our Process

Pondurance conducts a review of existing policies and procedures and compares them to PCI SSC requirements. The team then interviews the key people responsible for implementing them and verifies procedure execution through artifact review.

After extensive review, Pondurance provides either an SAQ or an ROC accompanied by an AoC. Our security experts tailor a prioritized approach to bringing your organization to compliance as quickly as possible.

Your Report

  • ROC or SAQ accompanied by an AoC
  • If you are out of compliance, Pondurance can provide you with advisory services and assist in completing the PCI DSS prioritized approach

With a Pondurance PCI DSS Assessment, you can achieve the standards of a comprehensive cybersecurity program outlined by the PCI SSC and reduce risk with minimal time and expense.
