In recent years, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has become the standard measure for payment-industry data security efforts. While complying with PCI is mandatory for anyone who stores, transmits, or processes cardholder data, simply remaining compliant is no guarantee of security.
Advanced technologies such as tokenization, point-to-point encryption (P2PE), 3DS, mobile payments, and EMV often outpace compliance mandates. As one of the first Qualified Security Assessors (QSA) for PCI compliance and a leader in technology-led cyber risk management, Coalfire helps payments organizations meet compliance mandates while building a pragmatic approach to mitigating cyber risk.
We have the complete breadth of technical capability within the PCI community and can help payments organizations validate every aspect of the card payment ecosystem. Our payments domain knowledge spans cloud, embedded systems, encryption, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, and virtualization. Should a breach occur, our team of PCI Forensic Investigators can respond rapidly to help the breached entity contain the compromise and begin remediation.
Our work with investigations enables us to help merchant and service provider clients with a deeper understanding of vulnerabilities, the implications of incorrectly implementing standards, and how compromises occur. Armed with this valuable information, clients can make more informed decisions, moving beyond simply meeting a standard and receiving validation to a more comprehensive security posture.
