PCI DSS SAQ B Compliance | Self-Assessment Questionnaires and Forms | PCI Compliance Policies

PCI DSS SAQ B – specifically, the actual questionnaire and accompanying forms – are an important component of the PCI DSS “self-assessment” process for many merchants involved in the storing, processing, and/or transmission of cardholder data.  PCI DSS SAQ B is specifically geared towards merchants that process cardholder data via imprint machines, or standalone dial-out terminals.  Furthermore, SAQ B merchants may be a traditional brick-and-mortar entity, or even e-commerce, mail and telephone order merchants.  

Requirements for allowing Merchants to use SAQ B for PCI DSS Compliance
