PSC is certified by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council and card brands as a PCI Forensic Investigator (PFI) Company. When an entity that stores, processes, or transmits payment card data is compromised and is the subject of a security issue, that entity may be required to engage a PFI to assess and report on the breach. PSC provides discreet onsite inspection of systems, networks, and applications to provide information as quickly as possible to identify the source and scope of the breach. This ensures that appropriate remediation can be applied to mitigate the impact of the breach and return to normal operational capabilities as soon as possible. This process can be applied when a breach is suspected, during a breach, and after a breach has been confirmed.
PSC also provides forensic services to Clients who do not need an official PFI report and for non-breach related needs:
