PCI Forensic Investigator
Beyond the Loss of Data
Hundreds of Millions of people globally, use their digital mode to make payments on a daily basis. The security of payment data is of utmost importance not only to the customer or vendor but the entire payment ecosystem. Any breach or theft results in a domino effect which severely impacts all the stakeholders of the system from customers to merchants to financial institutions.
Merchants and financial institutions lose their credibility, and their customers suffer from paranoia and loss of confidence resulting in them shifting to competitors. This adversely impacts sales and subsequently higher costs related to legal settlements, fines and penalties, compliances and so on.
Hence, data breaches lead to reputational damage, which is more than the loss of data itself.
Who is a PCI Forensic Investigator?

Why you need PFI Services?
Payment security is of utmost importance for every financial institution, merchant, or any other entity which transmits, processes, or stores payment data.
Organizations of all sizes are vulnerable to data breaches. Larger sized organizations, including merchants and financial institutions, tend to have expensive and fairly substantial security measures in place but also have a larger infrastructure to protect. They also have a large amount of data and hence incentivize the bad guys to hack. For smaller organizations, they may not have robust security processes or infrastructure.
As an approved PFI, SISA can help you investigate and manage payment security breaches. Even if you suspect no breach, SISA can help you with a detailed investigation and give you an assessment report in line with PFI guidelines.
