Q: How do I become PCI compliant?

A: There are three paths to PCI-DSS compliance:

Self-assessment You may choose to do your own PCI compliance assessment by using the forms located on the PCI Security Standards Council website;

Assess and validate PCI-DSS compliance through a third party Qualified Security Assessor(QSA) of your choice, choosing from the list provided on the PCI Security Standards Council website, then provide a copy of your Attestation of Compliance and Scan (if applicable) to Forte either by email to or faxed to (469) 342-8010;
