Security issues have evolved since so additional questions and answers were needed to ensure you had a comprehensive toolset to become more aware of the evolving security threat landscape that could impact your organization.
The questionnaire consists of a set of 12 security requirements sub-divided into 6 broader sections - with each section targeting a specific area of security from the PCI Data Security Standard. All sections must be completed. There are 9 different versions of the self assessment questionnaire.
The version that your organization will need to complete depends on how your company handles credit card data - this is called your 'Validation Type'.
For some merchants, the appropriate questionnaire is short and simple, while for others it is long and technical. The first five or six questions in the compliance wizard will quickly determine your company's validation type then automatically begin the appropriate questionnaire.
Failing any question means the merchant or service provider is not compliant. The risk s identified by the questionnaire must be remedied and the questionnaire retaken.
Each question is accompanied by expert advice to help the merchant interpret and appropriately answer each question. At the end of the wizard you will find out immediately whether or not your answers qualify your organization as PCI compliant. At the end of your questionnaire you will receive: A Questionnaire Summary - Listing security control areas on which you failed compliance.
A custom 'Remediation Plan' for your company containing: A remediation planning tool enabling task prioritization and project management. A non-compliant resolution summary with links to recommended products and services that will help you cost-effectively resolve non-compliant areas.
Your progress is automatically saved after each question - allowing you to log out and return at a later date to complete the questionnaire. Your free account and responses are retained, giving you an opportunity to revise and modify any of your answers.
This also allows you to update, schedule and track the progress of outstanding remediation tasks.
