Technology Compliance & Training

Independent Audits and Compliance Assessments

Security and compliance are not synonymous. Compliance should be a side effect of well-designed security controls. Using a risk-based gap analysis approach, our professionals assist clients globally as they walk through the often muddy waters of compliance and regulatory requirements. Whether requirements come from national or international standards or other regulatory bodies, the focus remains on security.


PCI DSS stand for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and was adopted by the payment card brands for the protection of cardholder data being processed, stored, and/or transmitted.

PIN Security

Since 2000, the Payment Brands and Payment Networks have mandated security compliance reviews to ensure member financial institutions maintain the highest level of network security.

SOC Reports

The Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements Number 18 (SSAE 18) was issued by the AICPA for reporting on controls at a service organization.
