Continual Compliance

This service provides year-round guidance so companies can meet recurring requirements of regulatory standards and improve their compliance programs.

Navigating the evolving compliance landscape and implementing requirements into day-to-day operations can be a challenge for merchants. In response, RSM’s Qualified Security Assessors (QSAs) can provide guidance to build a full compliance program from the ground up, or help refine your current program to better meet your needs involving Payment Card Industry (PCI) and National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF), for example.

The example of PCI shows how continual compliance works. A continual compliance approach is useful because the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) is a mature standard that frequently changes. Our QSAs and subject matter experts can work with you so your PCI systems and processes are secure and compliant at all levels, eliminating the rework necessary to add security after they have been developed. You will be prepared whenever a new trend or vulnerability emerges that may affect your PCI environment.

Your QSA will define milestones for your program to meet, building a timeline for compliance that can be monitored quarterly. Additionally, any issues or concerns can be addressed as they occur, so that your program continues to meet its goals. Ultimately, RSM’s continual compliance program delivers not only a one-time completion of a report on compliance (RoC), but an overall culture shift that treats compliance as a regular part of doing business. In the end, completing your RoC each year will have only a minimal impact on your overall security effort.
