Bridewell Achieves QSA Status

Published 1 October 2020

We’re delighted to announce Bridewell has achieved Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) Company Status from the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). This is an exciting step in our ongoing growth as a leading independent cyber security and data privacy company.

We already have a wealth of experience in supporting businesses by assisting them with implementing the requirements of  PCI DSS, leveraging our cyber security consulting,  penetration testing and managed security services, but will now be able to formally validate a company’s adherence to PCI DSS in addition.

Bridewells Delivery Director, Scott Nicholson, stated “We’re excited to be able to offer PCI DSS services across EMEA, combining our strategic, business driven approach with deep technical and compliance expertise.  This is another validation of Bridewell’s experience and expertise across cyber and information security, which adds to our NCSC, CREST, ASSURE and IASME accreditations.”

Organisations must ensure transaction data is appropriately secured and companies that require audits and to produce a Report on Compliance (RoC) must be assessed by a QSA company. However, leveraging QSA companies to support you with understanding whether you need to comply with PCI DSS, what the scope of your compliance looks like or assisting you with implementing the requirements can often be an effective and cost efficient way of meeting your obligations.  Bridewell’s services span across all aspects of cyber security, from assessment, advisory, penetration testing, vulnerability management and 24×7 security operations centre, which are all certified to international standards such as ISO27001, ISO9001 and accredited where appropriate by industry bodies such as NCSC, CREST, IASME and now the PCI SSC.
