PCI DSS New Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) Summary

PCI Data Security Standard Self-Assessment: How it All Fits Together

The PCI Data Security Standard and supporting documents represent a common set of industry tools and measurements to help ensure the safe handling of sensitive information. The standard provides an actionable framework for developing a robust account data security process - including preventing, detecting and reacting to security incidents. To reduce the risk of compromise and mitigate its impacts if it does occur, it is important that all entities storing, processing, or transmitting cardholder data be compliant. The chart below outlines the tools in place to help organizations with PCI DSS compliance and self-assessment.

The PCI Security Standards Council (the "Council") provides a variety of tools, questionnaires, guidance, FAQs, training resources and other materials and information to assist organizations seeking to achieve compliance with its standards (the "Standards"). Third party products and services are also available, but the Council does not endorse or recommend any such third party products or services, and advises all organizations seeking to achieve compliance to become familiar with the Standards and related requirements before purchasing third party products or services. Ultimately, all applicable requirements must be met in order to achieve compliance, regardless of whether or what third party products or services are used.
