PCI DSS V4.0 Gap External Assessment


PCI DSS v4.0 external gap assessment to evaluate the organizations’ readiness for the new standard.¬† The results help prepare a remediation plan.



Does your company need help to assess readiness for version 4 of the PCI DSS?¬† Completing this assessment by Servadus helps organizations determine gaps in compliance from the previous standard to the current one.¬† An external gap assessment is ideal for companies without the resources or technical knowledge to assess themselves.¬† With Servadus’ top-quality assessment services, the assessment includes online project tracking and an online tool for artifacts and evidence.¬† Our Profession Service team coordinates the evidence collection and conducts needed interviews.

What to Expect

The assessment includes all the questions and tests for each sub-control of new changes made since the previous standard of the PCI DSS.¬† ¬†There are five primary responsibilities during the assessment.¬† The assessor determines if the controls are “In Place” and enters a “Not Applicable” determination if needed, and observations are made during the evaluation.¬† There is a joint effort to upload evidence to the online assessment tool.
