The client, a prominent African payment service provider, faced a critical setback when renewing their PCI DSS certification, discovering their past certification had lapsed unnoticed, posing serious compliance risks. As a result, they were at risk of incurring penalties and, more critically, jeopardizing customer trust and data security. An initial audit also deemed the client unqualified due to significant security lapses, exposing critical compliance deficiencies.
SISA’s multi-faceted audit process and an in-depth analysis of the security measures helped the client foster a culture of security awareness and compliance, thereby significantly reducing the audit timeline from over a year to just five months.
