PCI Forensic Investigators (PFIs) help determine the occurrence of a cardholder data compromise and when and how it may have occurred. These PCI Forensic Investigators are qualified by the Council’s program and must work for a Qualified Security Assessor company that provides a dedicated forensic investigation practice. They perform investigations within the financial industry using proven investigative methodologies and tools. They also provide relationships with law enforcement to support stakeholders with any resulting criminal investigations.
For additional information regarding the status of a specific PFI organization, please contact that organization’s Primary Contact as listed on the PCI SSC website. For general information about remediation, please contact the PCI SSC Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
