What you can expect from Aprio’s PCI compliance team

It takes PCI expertise, strong project management and enabling technology to deliver quality PCI compliance reporting efficiently. If you are tired of enduring the inefficiencies and stress of compliance spikes, here is what you can expect from Aprio:

PCI DSS scoping clarity

We gain a detailed understanding of your business, system architecture and data flow, which delivers confidence that your PCI scope and PCI ROC meet your compliance, security and stakeholder needs.

Efficiency & organization

Understand the complete set of evidence required for your assessment organized to your scope and how you manage PCI, rather than simply sharing the 800+ rows of your ROC.

Progress transparency

Aprio’s PCI Assessment Platform (APAP) provides real-time monitoring of evidence and testing results at the company, department, or individual level.

Efficiency & security

Aprio’s APAP enables your team to easily attach files and know the requirements and status of addressing each.  APAP can directly access GRC or other data repositories logically and via APIs.

Control & peace-of-mind

Because our approach is founded on a detailed assessment project plan, managed through our platform, you know at all times the status of your assessment, next steps, and whether or not your assessment is on track.

The PCI DSS is a set of security standards developed by the Payment Card Security Standards Council’s that is designed to ensure that all companies that process, transmit or store credit card data maintain a secure environment. But PCI is just one of many compliance frameworks.

If you are required to manage data security and privacy compliance reporting requirements in addition to PCI, you’ll appreciate Aprio’s pragmatic approach that unifies the collection and cataloging of control evidence. We can help you avoid audit fatigue.

Aprio is one of the few firms that can provide third-party testing and attestation against the leading compliance frameworks including SOC reporting, ISO 27001, ISO 27701, HITRUST CSF, NY DFS and more.

Our goal is to help you make effective, sustainable information risk management and reporting easier to achieve.
