March 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Scottsdale, AZ – March 17, 2011 – Terra Verde LLC, a professional services firm specializing in risk management, announced today their validation by the PCI Security Standards Council as a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).  Prior to this validation, Terra Verde professionals contributed to the PCI Council’s standards and programs on behalf of a founding Payment Brand of the PCI Council, and successfully assisted clients with implementing PCI standards and programs.

Terra Verde’s services for PCI are independent of each other.  Reflecting the same approach of public audit firms, organizations requesting PCI services of Terra Verde are classified into one of two categories: “PCI Assessment” or “PCI Solutions”.  PCI Assessment clients will be provided with an annual onsite review or a Self-Assessment Questionnaire. Clients under the PCI Solutions category will be managed by Terra Verde’s PCI readiness service team. Using this system avoids any occurrence of risk to a client that results from a vendor assessing it’s own work.

Cindy Donaldson, partner and PCI program director of Terra Verde stated, “standing shoulder to shoulder with our clients over the past several years on PCI, we have seen a growing concern related to assessor independence within the PCI compliance market.  Our team’s depth of experience with PCI and our commitment to providing independent services is what sets us apart.”

Terra Verde continues to possess a strong edge in their market with a team of highly qualified individuals, each with a minimum of 10 years of IT experience. Edward Vasko, co-founder and managing director at Terra Verde Services said, “We have successfully prepared both small and large clients to achieve and sustain PCI compliance in the most efficient manner possible.  We plan to continue our same level of quality, but now we can offer our existing clients and new clients flexibility that will save them money and prevent any concerns about independence.”
