PCI Level 1 Call Center
Available from Quality Contact Solutions, Inc.
When contracting with an outsourced telemarketing service provider, make sure you ask if they are a PCI Level 1 Service Provider. This is particularly important if your telemarketing campaign involves making a sale or taking an order with a credit card.
Quality Contact Solutions is a PCI Level 1 Service Provider. There are very few inbound and outbound telemarketing companies that have earned this certification. Even fewer have their PCI Level 1 Attestation of Compliance (AOC) signed by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). Quality Contact Solutions has this (click here to request more information).
Beginning in 2013, Quality Contact Solutions contracted with CompliancePoint to be our PCI QSA to achieve PCI Level 1. A PCI QSA is an impartial third party organization subject to the PCI Data Security Standard to conduct PCI assessment or advise an organization on how to achieve PCI compliance. During the PCI assessment, the QSA determines whether the organization has met the 12 PCI requirements, either directly or through compensating controls. The QSA then completes a Report on Compliance (ROC) to verify the organization’s compliance. By the way, QCS completed the steps to become PCI Level 1 compliant in record time! (Less than 4 months)
