Data Genesis is pleased to announce as of June 2012 PCI Rapid Comply will replace the PCI Site Certification services previously provided through Security Metrics, Inc. We believe this change provides a better program and makes it easier and faster to achieve and maintain compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).
The PCI Rapid Comply solution is accessible online, (www.pcirapidcomply.com) and offers:
- Step-by-step guidance to complete the annual self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ): You can complete the SAQ with guided support, ensuring each question is answered accurately.
- Fewer questions to answer: With “pre-SAQ” questions, some SAQ answers are pre-populated with the appropriate SAQ answers, minimizing the number of questions you have to deal with.
- Comprehensive support that ensures your questions get answered: With the built-in help, guides and security expertise, your PCI questions can be answered online and via chat, email and by phone. (1.855.532.4891)
- Integrated and automatic scans: Once you set up a scan (if needed) for the first time, the PCI Rapid Comply solution will automatically execute quarterly scans for merchants that are required to pass a scan as part of the compliance process.
There are no new or additional charges associated with taking advantage of the PCI Rapid Comply solution.
If you choose to use a third-party vendor for PCI DSS compliance services, you will need to contract with and pay that vendor directly. In addition to your alternate vendor’s charges for PCI DSS services, you will still be assessed the annual Compliance Service Fee and if you fail to become PCI DSS compliant or to report your compliant status to us, you are subject to a monthly non-receipt of PCI Validation fee.
