PA DSS is fast becoming a strict requirement for many of today's payment applications.
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2011
PA DSS compliance is a strict requirement for payment applications that conduct authorization and settlement functions and are also being sold, licensed, or distributed to other parties. What's more, PA DSS compliance can be an arduous and time-consuming process, thus it's critically important to utilize a well-skilled payments consulting firm, one that is fully licensed by the PCI Security Standards Council, and one that can provide your organization with a competitive, fixed-fee pricing structure-that's NDB Advisory.
The PA DSS assessment consists of thirteen (13) requirements along with two (2) important appendix sections, one that describes the requirements for an "Implementation Guide" and the other detailing the laboratory instructions for testing and validating an actual live environment of the application itself.
There are also numerous sub-requirements within each of the thirteen (13) core requirements that must be validated by a PA-QSA-a fully licensed and accredited individual allowed to perform PA DSS assessments. Simply stated, the scope of a PA DSS engagement can be technical and in-depth, requiring a seasoned PA-QSA to perform the assessment.
