Our Approach to PCI Security
As one of the few Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) firms certified by the PCI Council, AWA, specializes in information security testing to better serve our clients’ unique needs. Our team leverages an in-depth knowledge from decades of experience for comprehensive cybersecurity solutions tailored to your compliance needs.
Our certified security assessors assist clients in determining your PCI compliance scope and requirements. To assess compliance with PCI DSS requirements, they conduct interviews, control walkthroughs, and analyze paperwork. They detect and report any gaps in compliance with PCI requirements and guide remediation at each step. Finally, our QSAs complete the Report on Compliance, Attestation of Compliance, or SAQ as required.
