From audit, to implementation and certification, we can advise you at every stage of the process

If your business conducts the keeping or passing of credit card data, then it is compulsory that your company adheres to what is known as PCI DSS. This stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, and refers to a particular information security standard which specifies the relevant security standards and procedures concerning the configuration, systems configuration, auditing and access of your company's computer network.

Working to ensure that your business complies with these standards can prove problematic, but thankfully less so with the help of various services provided by Proxar.

These services concern progressing through various phases, namely: providing at least one initial PCI DSS audit (phase 1), PCI DSS consultancy (phase 2), PCI DSS implementation (phase 2), and, finally, PCI DSS compliance or certification (phase 3). However, as it is unwise for any company to certify its own work at the implementation phase, we pledge not to provide all of the above services together.

Expert Consultancy from Proxar IT Consulting

The first of these phases, the initial audit, will involve discerning the unique requirements of your company, examining its existing infrastructure, conducting a gap analysis and, finally, drawing up a project plan. As a result of this, you should receive a report judging the network, systems, documentation and procedures of your company's infrastructure, as well as detailing the gap analysis: the differences between your company's current stage and the stage it will need to reach in order to achieve PCI DSS certification. However, implementing the requirements of PCI DSS compliance can prove tricky, especially if it inadvertently negatively affects other aspects of the operation of the company's web environment. Thankfully, however, the project plan drawn up as a result of our consultancy service will provide sound advice on traversing this tricky stage.

Remember: in a competitive corporate world, your company can't afford to lend the job of PCI DDS consultancy and information security to anything less than expert hands.

This is far from the only manner in which our consultancy services can assist you in effectively implementing the network, systems and governance requirements of PCI DSS recommended at the PCI DSS audit and PCI DSS consultancy stages. As a service provider, we are not aligned with any particular vendors; however, in our experience, vendors particularly effective at assisting in high quality PCI DSS implementation include Cisco for network equipment and Red Hat Enterprise Linux for operating systems. The expertise of these companies, aligned to that of Proxar IT Consulting, promises to lead to accomplished PCI DSS certification.
