PCI Scoping & Readiness Assessments: Achieving PCI DSS compliance efficiently means beginning with a scoping & readiness assessment.

Do you have adequate PCI policies and procedures in place and can we review them? (3). Are you aware of the various security tools and systems that need to be in place for PCI compliance, such as FIM, vulnerability scanning, etc.?

The list goes on, but the point to make is that we unearth all issues, ultimately laying the groundwork for a successful PCI compliance process from beginning to end.
