How do I get compliant?

To become PCI Compliant you'll need to complete the PCI SAQ, or Self Assessment Questionnaire, and if required also conduct a vulnerability scan of your network.

This question will ultimately depend on specifically how you process. Every merchant is a little bit different, and thus, their PCI compliance process will be slightly different, too. Think of this like "doing your taxes" - it's the same process  for everyone (we all fill out that form!) but everyone's form will look different, based on their job, marital status, location, etc. So we can speak in generalities about PCI compliance, but every merchant will have inherently different requirements based on the equipment they use, and the networks they utilize.

It sounds more complicated that it is in reality! We work directly with our merchants to ensure compliance. Once you're signed up with AND, we will share your PCI compliance login information, where you can complete your annual questionnaire. Based on your answers to the PCI SAQ, it will automatically determine if you must also conduct a vulnerability scan of your network. If a scan is required it's simply a matter of scheduling a time for the scan to occur and wait for the results.

Should a scan fail a report will be generated to help you make the necessary changes to ensure you pass on the next scan. Usually, these are modest/easy network changes. And, rest assured, this is all built into your merchant account and has no added charges! Part of our job is ensuring that this process is smooth and easy - we're here to help.
