You knew it was possible, and now you fear that it’s finally happened: your network may have been compromised.
Maybe you discovered the potential cardholder data breach on your own, or you’ve been alerted by a third-party payment brand or acquirer (merchant bank). Either way, you need to act – quickly but strategically.
The highly sensitive (and highly sought-after) nature of consumers’ financial information makes protecting cardholders’ data a top priority. The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council® operates the in-depth certification programs for the cybersecurity industry – ensuring organizations, like yours, know who they can trust when it comes to preventing, responding to, and recovering from a cardholder data breach. Intersec Worldwide is proud to be certified as a PCI Forensics Investigator (PFI).
We are qualified and certified to work across industries, however, PCI Forensic Investigators (PFIs) are independent incident response experts who are certified to respond to data breaches in the payment card financial industry – determining whether a breach of cardholder data occurred, what information was compromised, and how it happened. Ideally, they should also be able to design and implement remediation plans to correct the vulnerability that left you exposed in the first place (although not all incident response teams take this full-service approach like we do).
At Intersec, our PFI practice remains on the cutting edge of investigative methodologies and tools – allowing us to combat the constantly evolving techniques of today’s hackers. The information we gather is used to battle against the breach, alert affected consumers about the compromise, and support any resulting civil or criminal investigations.
If you suspect a breach, it’s essential to speak with an expert before you take any action (which could compromise important evidence). We’re ready to help.
