Self Assessment Questionnaire

The Self Assessment Questionnaire or SAQ is a list of questions provided by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Council that a merchant can use to assess their security capabilities against the Data Security Standards (DSS) expected of them. There are different versions of the SAQ depending on how the merchant captures and uses credit cards within their  business (for example via phone, via third party website, via own website).

Pipe Ten can help customers with the completion of a SAQ from the correct interpretation of the requirements to the deployment of security to address the expectation of each requirement.
