PCI DSS Reports on Compliance (ROC)

Connect with us

Trusted PCI compliance assessments involve more than just a quick checklist process to produce a Report on Compliance (ROC). They are designed to help confirm that cardholder data is protected and assure cardholders that they can safely use their credit cards. Deficient, hurried assessments can increase the risk and impact of a data breach, while weak assessment processes can result in delays, business disruption, and cost overruns.

Go beyond a checklist approach

Many QSA firms can deliver ROCs. But not all ROCs are the same. Some QSA firms send out junior auditors who simply follow checklists; others conveniently identify compliance gaps for related business to remediate. Some lack the technical acumen, QA processes, and peer reviews that ensure accuracy and clarity. And still others make mistakes in scoping the cardholder data environment (CDE).

We believe that if you're going to invest budget and resources in a ROC, you deserve more than a check in the box. You should get:

  • An experienced assessor who readily understands your business’s security goals and has practical knowledge of the payment solutions and technologies you use.
  • A thorough and complete depiction of your CDE, and by extension, the risks you need to manage.
  • An accurate assessment of where you stand versus the requirements.
  • Independent recommendations on procedures and solutions that will help you close identified gaps.
  • Evidence that proves your controls are in place and working effectively.
  • A fully documented ROC that is accepted – the first time around – by your business partners.

All assessment projects utilize our Compliance Essentials SaaS platform. Coalfire Compliance Essentials makes managing compliance, assessments, and risk easier and more efficient by allowing you to take a proactive and continuous approach to your compliance program.
