The PCI DSS forces companies to protect cardholder data throughout the entire information life cycle. The implications, however, are broader: organizations must know where the data exists across an often distributed enterprise; they must fully understand their current state of PCI compliance to develop improvement plans; and they must have the ability to remediate as necessary.
Beyond these challenges, though, lies opportunity: as businesses focus time and resources on addressing PCI compliance, there is an opportunity to extend these investments into long-term programs for compliance that make companies more proactive than reactive, help businesses improve their overall IT security posture, and maximize the return on their security investment.
Security-Meter offers a range of services & solutions that help customers achieve these objectives. In addition, Security-Meter has capabilities to address core PCI DSS requirements, such as application security and IT Security policy development.
To ensure timely and smooth implementation of recommended process and technology changes, Security-Meter helps with program and project management. Successful implementations involve careful consideration of many elements, including: defining sponsorship, roles and responsibilities; managing project scope and communications; tracking program timelines, dependencies and schedules; registering and managing risks, issues and escalations; and reporting progress against schedules, metrics and key performance indicators.
Security-Meter can design, mobilize and staff a program management office for your PCI compliance initiative.
As organizations begin to approach PCI DSS compliance they must first understand any gaps that exist in order to identify remediation needs.

As a key deliverable, Security-Meter recommends a comprehensive reference architecture for proper handling of cardholder data. Security-Meter consultants deliver this proposed architecture by:
