Melbourne, 1st of December, 2017 – CyberRisk, one of Australia’s leading information security, technology risk management and privacy consulting firms today announced that it has successfully met all Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Council requirements to perform PCI data security assessments in Australia and has been approved as a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) company. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organisations that handle credit cards from the major card schemes such as VISA and Mastercard. The PCI DSS is a set of payment security standards designed to ensure that organisations accepting, processing, storing or transmitting credit card information maintain a secure environment. CyberRisk has been undertaking PCI compliance initiatives with clients since it was established in 2015, helping many Australian organisations assess and address complex PCI concerns. This new PCI certification takes those capabilities one step further. The designation affirms CyberRisk’s expertise and ability to evaluate a client’s security infrastructure, procedures, policies, networks, and information systems to ensure the organisation is protecting card holder data in compliance with the PCI DSS.
Wayne Tufek, a Director of CyberRisk said that, “Becoming a PCI QSA company shows our dedication to continually providing our clients with the right skills, expertise and advice to effectively manage their risk. We are committed to continously improving our client service capability and adding the PCI QSA company status to our credentials enforces our existing offerings such as security strategy development, penetration testing, vulnerability assessment, risk assessments and ISO 27001 certification.
