What does PCI Compliance cost?     

One of the most frequently asked questions from small businesses to large global enterprises is what does PCI Compliance cost?

There are three primary cost components to PCI DSS Compliance:

PCI Gap Assessments

Initial assessment to determine the scope and identify gaps

PCI Remediation

Cost of technology, procedures, and resources to become compliant and close the gaps found in the Gap Assessment

PCI SAQ Review or Report on Compliance

Recurring annual cost to validate PCI compliance
Any company that stores, manages, transmits, or processes data must take steps to ensure that it remains secure from theft or sabotage. To that end, the payment card industry has arrived at a set of data security standards to which all such companies must adhere. There are various costs associated with PCI compliance as well as factors that influence them, including the following:

The cost of PCI Compliance is impacted by the Merchant or Service Provider classification, scope of the PCI cardholder data environment, number of transactions, type of cardholder transactions, size of the assessed organization, number of geographic locations, and complexity of the IT infrastructure. The cost of PCI Compliance is often dependent on the skills and experience of the assessed entity’s PCI QSA (Qualified Security Assessor).

The starting cost for a typical SMB PCI Compliance project is $10,000. Managing the cost of PCI Compliance is of course very important – and a sound approach, with experienced QSA’s will provide long-term value to the organization. For over a decade TrustNet has provided cost-effective PCI Compliance services to multiple organizations, across industries, and around the world.
