What is PCI DSS Remediation?
A gap analysis will naturally point out any gaps between the organisation’s capabilities and the Standard’s requirements.

Once the optimum CDE scope has been identified, the organisation can then start to identify and remediate any compliance gaps.

URM can provide valuable input on how to deal with any gaps in a cost-effective and pragmatic way that reduces risk as well as fully meeting the applicable requirements of the PCI DSS.

of the PCI DSS, whilst also satisfying your business’ mission
and objectives in a manner that is consistent with your culture
and modus operandi.
