HOW IT WORKS

Getting compliant to PCI DSS will be just another day for you, owing to the expertise of Kratikal. We follow a systematic approach in all our compliance programs to ensure minimum business disruption, efficient compliance migrations and maximum efficiency. Then we start with. There are primarily four phases and in each phase, there can be several sub-phases:

Stage I: Scope Determination
Our expert implementers start by understanding the business process, realising the current state of the IT infrastructure. We list out the assets or network segment in the current scope.


Stage II: Gap Analysis
We perform a detailed assessment of the shortcomings of the current state of IT assets against the recommended standards of PCI DSS and industry best practices.


Stage III: Implementation
Aligning current processes with the guidelines of PCI, keeping in mind the latest recommendations of PCI DSS. We implement necessary controls and modify current information flow processes to improve the security posture of the organisation.


Stage IV: Internal Audit
Under this stage, we perform a final checklist-oriented audit to verify adherence to suggested controls and implementation. This helps us rectify process oversights and enforce employee level controls if needed.


Stage V: Certification
Certification process is carried out by independent auditors, not by the implementers. We bring the auditor for the certification process. Thus, we take care of end to end process from scope determination to certification making the whole process easy for the client.

Depending upon the number of employees, scale of organisation, IT Assets, Network, card data flow and geographical spread, the exact duration of the process will vary.
