Maidstone, Kent 2nd July 2008 - MIS Corporate Defence Solutions (MIS CDS) is pleased to announce the company’s addition to the list of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). As the UK’s leading Security Services organisation this means you are guaranteed assurances for any audit work undertaken to meet your requirements under the PCI regulations. In addition, MIS CDS is the first senior Check Point, Juniper, Nokia and RSA vendor partner to attain PCI QSA status in the UK which gives you assurances that you are working with an organisation with expertise and real world experience working along side these and other compliant vendors.

PCI DSS is a set of standards that is mandatory for all organisations that process debit and credit card payments. These requirements are managed by PCI Co, a US-based organisation that oversees these requirements and disseminates any changes regarding the regulations.

The requirements were developed to ensure that cardholder data is being properly protected. These standards cover everything from making sure organisations build and maintain secure networks, to having a comprehensive information security policy in place to rigorously protect cardholder information.

MIS CDS are pleased to offer our customers two services around PCI DSS. MIS CDS’ PCI DSS consultants come from a technical background and can offer you auditing services to ensure that your solution meets those requirements as set out by PCI DSS and by working to very tightly audited frameworks ensure that you are compliant at all times. Additionally MIS CDS can offer Consultancy Services to assist in the design and installation of solutions required to meet those requirements as set out by the PCI DSS mandate.

MIS CDS can take clients from the first stage - actually identifying where cardholder data flows and is stored throughout the organisation to performing annual PCI DSS audits, and all points in between.

"As the UK’s longest Security only focussed Security Solutions Provider, we are pleased to have been appointed as the UK’s first senior Security Solutions organisation" comments Tracey Hannan, Product Marketing Manager at MIS CDS "this allows us to further assist our existing customers to meet the ever growing regulatory mandates and pressures placed on them and to offer both an auditing and solutions service to new customers"
