The founders of Payment Card Assessments know all to well what it’s like to receive a scan report with over 2,000 configuration failures, a standards team that didn’t communicate changes to the scanning team, and an implementation team that had no idea what they were supposed to do to an in-scope asset before it went into production.
Let’s be real for a second – the report on compliance is mandatory for all level 1 merchants and any merchant regardless of level that is required to provide a report on compliance by either their acquirer or card brand. Most level 1 merchants fall out of compliance shortly after the ink is dry on their most recent report. Why? Because they don’t have a sustainability program. The RoC is treated like a bad surprise every year and that creates wasted effort, lost money, and burned out staff.
