Our PCI Penetration Testing Approach
Defining the Scope
A complete coverage of the PCI Penetraton Scope is essential to ensure the continuous compliance to PCI DSS Requirements. All systems &networks that store, process, or transmit cardholder data or sensitive authentication data and any technology that can affect its security should be part of the scope.
The assets in the scope are identified in the recon phase of the PCI pentesting.
At this stage, we will perform the required security tests and exploitations as outlined in the PCI DSS Penetration Testing Guidelines
We will prepare QSA acceptable penetration test reports, which includes the methodlogy of tests, documentation of findings and remediation steps.
Clean reports are critical for the success of your PCI Compliance. We can perform re-test to validate the closure and issue clean report once everything is fixed.
