Our approach to PCI DSS Compliance Audit



Conduct a preliminary company analysis better to understand the card processes and the surrounding world, and then narrow the scope accordingly.



The entire compliance program is predicated on the importance of accurately defining your environment. At this point, a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) will assist you in identifying the business units that store, process, and transmit cardholder data in relation to the strategy phase identified above. This ensures that scope reduction strategies are documented and agreed upon. After this stage, a clear and negligible scope for compliance should remain.


Gap Analysis

Our Consultants will assess the existing infrastructure for gaps against the PCI security standards council, including a physical security audit. The findings will be compiled into a report defining your degree of compliance, and the risk treatment plan will be used to compile the PCI-DSS and Policy Rollout Strategy.


Awareness Training

Our Security Consultants will conduct awareness sessions for your IT team and other personnel involved in card data processing, providing a brief overview of the PCI DSS.


Classification of Assets

Our security consultants will identify your organization's information assets and classify them according to their criticality to create an asset inventory.


Assessment of Data Leakage

Our Security Consultants will assess your application for data leakage and assist with remediation.


Risk Assessment

Our security consultants will conduct a risk assessment to determine which assets are at risk and how they might affect your business.


Risk Treatment

Our Security Consultants will provide you with comprehensive remediation plans, as well as the suggestion of compensating controls, if necessary, to help your company improve its security posture.


Assistance with documentation

Our security consultants will assist you in developing policies and procedures that are compliant with the PCI DSS specifications and then reviewed by your team.


PCI-DSS Policy Rollout

Our Risk Advisory teams will collaborate with your team to assist you with implementing the PCI-DSS Controls and related policies.


Employee Training

Our security consultants will conduct an employee training program on their basic roles for all employees covered under the scope.


PCI-DSS Readiness Review

This phase will determine whether or not the client is ready to obtain PCI-DSS certification. HackersEra will guide the client's audit team through the process of conducting internal audits. Your implementation team will review the audit results and, if any gaps are discovered, HackersEra will help you close them.


Certification audit

Finally, you'll be audited by a team of auditors from the certification body. Throughout the audit, HackersEra consultants will assist your team. We'll help you resolve any non-conformities or observations raised by external auditors, and we'll work with you to achieve PCI-DSS certification.

PCI DSS Compliance Audit?

If you are a merchant or service provider that stores, handles, or transmits cardholder data, PCI enforcement is essential to your organization's operational security. A non-compliant company can face significant fines and penalties, as well as the loss of the right to accept card payments, loss of revenue, diminished consumer trust, and legal costs. PCI enforcement demonstrates your commitment to security and reassures clients about the security of their cardholder data.



PCI DSS is a comprehensive and granular requirement that applies to all entities that store, process, or distribute payment card data, as well as organizations that may affect the protection of a credit card processing environment. Our Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) will guide you through the PCI compliance process from initial examination to full compliance in the most effective and least intrusive manner possible.
