SAQ A Policies Packet : Version 3.2
The SAQ A Policies Packet for Version 3.2 of the PCI DSS standards contains all the necessary PCI policies for compliance with the PCI DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaire A requirements. You’ll receive a comprehensive file containing a detailed, step-by-step process for achieving PCI compliance (Section I), PCI policy and procedures templates developed specifically for SAQ A (Section II), along with a high-quality, in-depth PCI Information Security Policy as mandated by PCI DSS Requirement 12.1 (Section III), and a certificate of compliance (Section IV).
Specifically, you’ll receive the following:
Section I - A detailed overview for becoming PCI DSS compliant. It's a step-by-step list of actions to be undertaken by your organization for ensuring all aspects of PCI compliance have been thoroughly understood and met. Brief, yet detailed and easy-to-read, the roadmap effectively distills, clarifies, and simplifies issues relating to PCI compliance, giving you a comfort level you deserve.
Section II - Each of the PCI DSS reporting requirements - from the Self-Assessment Questionnaires to an actual Level 1 onsite assessment by a PCI-QSA - requires PCI specific policies and procedures. That's exactly what you'll receive in Section II - documentation specific to the following reporting requirements for Self -Assessment Questionnaire A (SAQ A).
- Requirement 2
- Requirement 8
- Requirement 9
- Requirement 12
Section III - The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) specifically states for Requirement 12.1 to "establish, publish, maintain, and disseminate a security policy that...addresses all PCI DSS requirements". This is noted on page one-hundred and five (105) of the actual pdf file for the "PCI DSS Requirements and Security Assessment Procedures", version 3.2, dated 2016. Additionally, though Requirement 12.1 is NOT “required for SAQ A, it’s a really good idea to have a comprehensive information security policy and procedures manual for best practices. Thus, you'll receive an Information Security Manual that's over 100 pages long!
Section IV - A PCI DSS Certificate of Compliance template to be completed and displayed after successfully meeting all stated requirements as mandated by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.
Together, all four sections provided in the SAQ A Policies Packet become your authoritative guide and policy documentation for helping achieve PCI DSS compliance in an efficient, cost-effective, and comprehensive manner. You’ll be purchasing much more than just PCI policies and procedures, you'll be obtaining high-quality documentation that provides essential ingredients for PCI success, now and in the future.
