Trustwave, a provider of information security and compliance solutions, has joined the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) Forensic Investigator Programme (FPI) and is now represented on the council’s centralised listing of approved investigators.
The PFI programme aligns industry requirements for identifying and approving forensic investigators to ensure the consistency and quality of their services to compromised entities. The PCI SSC will manage a centralised public listing of PCI forensic investigators that are subject to the council’s quality assurance reviews. Organisations requiring forensic investigative services can now consult a single central resource recognised by each payment card brand.
“Having been a qualified incident response assessor for the card brands for almost 10 years, Trustwave has the experience and expertise to help merchants and processors understand how a breach has affected an environment and the steps to take to secure their infrastructure,” said Nicholas Percoco, senior vice president (SVP) and head of SpiderLabs, Trustwave’s advanced security team. “We’re proud to be one of the first incident response teams to be named to the PCI PFI programme and look forward to working more closely with the council and providing our expertise to help secure card data environments.”
