Struggling to understand PCI DSS?

Don’t let anyone tell you PCI is easy, it isn’t. However, there are ways to make PCI compliance easier and more importantly less of a financial burden.

Seccom Group cover all aspects of PCI DSS but we specialise in scope reduction and SAQ Validation.

There are two main considerations when it comes to how much time and money you PCI compliance if going to cost you.

PCI Level 1 supplier


Scope is the extent of your organisation and systems exposure to card details, and therefore what areas are subject to PCI controls.


Our Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) determines how many controls you need to comply with and is closely connected to scope.

We use our expertise to reduce the scope by ensuring your systems and organisation has minimum exposure to card details.

Using our extensive knowledge of payment systems and options for taking payments, to recommend and implement a payment strategy that suites your business but places you on the SAQ with the least number of controls.

In extreme cases, this can result in a reduction of nearly 300 controls, saving the client significant time and effort.
