PCI Remediation


To achieve compliance with the PCI DSS, organizations that store, transmit and process cardholder data must have a wide range of controls and policies in place that address all facets of the regulation. To identify gaps and missing controls, organizations must conduct PCI assessments and remediation. The need for remediation can emerge at the preassessment stage or during the onsite audit, and the organization will often require quick action to reach a state of full compliance.

However, many organizations find it a challenge to stay abreast of the systems and processes required for compliance. For example, an intrusion prevention system (IPS) is a PCI requirement, but an organization must also show that it is actively monitoring and managing its IPS, or its compliance status will be at risk.

Remediation of PCI compliance issues requires resource-intensive efforts that can pull internal security teams away from their organization's core mission, causing many to fall behind in their compliance efforts.
