Continual Compliance

An annual program that guides information security teams in the periodic requirements and changes of the PCI DSS.

Information security is challenging, and adding compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) can make it that much more difficult. With compliance comes the leg-work of scheduling many administrative tasks, vulnerability scans, and the complex setups surrounding the exacting requirements. Few organizations have the time and resources to add this to the already pressing day-to-day IT security and compliance issues. SecureState’s certified PCI experts will guide you in the process of managing these time-sensitive tasks, increasing your security posture, while assuring your continued compliance with the PCI DSS throughout the year.


By reviewing your organization’s compliance with the PCI DSS at regular intervals, you will stay ahead of the curve, be aware of any changes to the standards, and avoid frustrating ambiguity about what the 12 Requirements really mean. Additionally, both time and money can be saved by receiving the direct input of a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) when it comes time to make changes to infrastructure and policy. Ultimately, PCI DSS compliance will become business as usual, rather than a frantic sprint at the end of the year.


Organizations make significant investments to achieve PCI DSS compliance. SecureState understands that falling out of compliance may mean losing that investment. Our certified and qualified professionals have experience helping companies maintain their networks to the fullest extent of the PCI DSS in the face of an ever changing technological and threat environment. We are dedicated to staying on the bleeding edge of these changes and we are ready to come alongside your organization to share it.

Approach and Methodology

SecureState partners with you to identify areas that will mature and maintain your PCI DSS program. In the PCI DSS Continual Compliance program, a SecureState PCI QSA will be dedicated as your organization’s primary point of contact to help manage the tasks and reviews required by the standard throughout the year. We start by sitting down with the organizational owner of PCI compliance to define compliance milestones and establish activities that must occur throughout the year, such as configuration reviews, testing, training, etc. that will facilitate ongoing PCI compliance. These activities will be given dates for completion and managed by teams from both SecureState and the client, ultimately ensuring readiness for the annual review. Finally, organizations that are in the continual compliance program benefit from the expertise and oversight of SecureState’s entire QSA staff. SecureState has been a QSA firm almost from the start of the PCI DSS and its staff has over a 100 combined years of experience.
