Find a QSA in Denver | Fixed Fees | 800-277-5415, ext. 705

NDB provides QSA services to both merchants and service providers in the greater Denver metropolitan area, including Fort Collins, Boulder, and all other surrounding regions. The Denver tech boom is real – very real – and it’s only going to become bigger, stronger, and more vibrant – which is great for the Colorado economy – but it also means growing compliance mandates.  Any business in the Denver area involved in storing, processing, and transmitting cardholder data must become compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), and NDB can help.  

NDB offers the following Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) services to merchants and service providers all throughout the greater Denver area, including Boulder, Fort Collins, and more:

PCI DSS Readiness Assessments: New to the world of PCI DSS compliance – welcome – and let us suggest that performing an actual PCI scoping and readiness assessment is critical for the overall success – both short-term and long-term – to one’s PCI DSS compliance goals.  When performed by a licensed PCI-QSA at NDB, a PCI DSS readiness assessment will help in determining project scope, what deficiencies require immediate attention, along with other essential issues. 

PCI Remediation: Remediation is a large part of PCI DSS compliance, and it often consists of two elements – operational, policy and procedure remediation, along with system configuration remediation. They both can be incredibly time-consuming to undertake, but thankfully NDB offers a wide variety of templates and tools for helping speed up the process. 

PCI SAQ Assistance: Many of today’s merchants can actually self-assess against any number of the PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQ) – but easier said than done – as the SAQ’s themselves can be very challenging.  Why? First and foremost, you’ll need to pick the correct SAQ – and there are quite a few to choose from. Second, you’ll need guidance and support in completing them, and that’s where NDB comes in.  Contact PCI-QSA Charles Denyer today at cdenyer@ndbcpa.com to learn more.

Policy Writing: Writing policies is never fun, and it’s often an incredibly mundane and time-consuming task, one that nobody really wants to perform. NDB – with our industry leading PCI policy templates – can author all your documentation for helping ensure compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).  From Requirement 1 to Requirement 12 of the PCI standards, the mandates for documentation are large – and growing – so talk to the PCI experts today and get help.

Penetration Testing: NDB also offers comprehensive penetration testing as mandated by the PCI DSS framework, which is a combination of network layer/application layer, internal/external penetration testing procedures.  Our services are priced at fixed-fees, complete with detailed reporting as to the results of the testing procedures and areas of remediation to be corrected, if necessary.
