PCI SAQ Assistance

The PCI DSS self-assessment questionnaires (SAQs) are validation tools intended to assist merchants and service providers report the results of their PCI DSS self-assessment.

Krypton Security can help determine which SAQ best applies to your organization, and more importantly assisting in the process of completing the questionnaire.

When self-assessing, it is important that the right SAQ is chosen. Often organizations will find that they do not meet all of the eligibility criteria for the SAQ they would like to complete and are burdened with the full set of PCI DSS requirements. Engaging with Krypton can provide invaluable assistance in determining which SAQ is most applicable and reducing the scope of your cardholder data environment. An SAQ counter-signed by a QSA has significantly more credibility.
