Companies affected by the PCI standard - merchants, banks, and service providers - are required to conduct a variety of validation activities, including quarterly scans, a self-assessment questionnaire, and an onsite review, depending on the level of the company. For example, Level 1 merchants - those that process more than 6 million transactions annually over telephone, Web, via mail, or in the store - are required to pass an annual audit review performed by an external, qualified assessor, as well as pass quarterly network scans.
