What is PCI DSS Risk Assessment?

PCI DSS Risk Assessment is the formal action of identifying threats and vulnerabilities that could adversely affect cardholder data security. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) mandates organizations to conduct an annual PCI Compliance Risk Assessment to identify the threats and vulnerabilities that may have a negative impact on their organizations.

Our PCI Risk Assessment in the UK helps organizations proactively detect, prioritize and handle security risks impacting their Cardholder Data Environment (CDE).

Fulfilling the requirements of PCI DSS Risk Assessment is a critical need on your way towards PCI Compliance. Security risks are always dynamic. Based on PCI Risk Assessment guidelines, we help you proactively detect existing security weaknesses and help build a concrete posture for future threats. PCI DSS risk assessment is one of our flagship payment security services aiding organizations to completely document potential security risks and vulnerabilities.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. What are the PCI compliance levels?2022-12-05T05:14:55+00:00

There are 4-merchant levels based on Visa transaction volume over a 12-month period. Transaction volume is computed based on the aggregate number of Visa transactions (including credit, debit and prepaid) p a merchant.

Merchant levels as specified by Visa: –

  • Any merchant processing over 6M Visa transactions per year, regardless of acceptance channels, falls under Level 1.
  • Any merchant processing 1M to 6M Visa transactions per year, regardless of acceptance channel, falls under Level 2.
  • Any merchant processing 20,000 to 1M Visa e-commerce transactions per year, regardless of acceptance channel, falls under Level 3.
  • Any merchant processing under 20,000 Visa e-commerce transactions per year, regardless of acceptance channel, falls under Level 4.
2. Do organizations using third-party processors require PCI DSS compliance?2022-12-05T05:15:51+00:00

Yes. Using third-party processors does not exclude the organization from PCI DSS compliance. It might reduce their risk exposure and lower the effort to validate compliance. However, it does not mean organizations can skip the PCI DSS.

3. If my business has multiple locations, does each location required to validate PCI compliance?2022-12-05T05:16:44+00:00

If your business locations function under the same Tax ID, then you must validate once annually for all locations. Also, submit quarterly passing network scans by a PCI SSC Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) separately for all locations, if applicable.
