Cost Savings Estimate - PCI DSS Policy & Standards?
The process of writing cybersecurity policies and standards can take an internal team many months and it involves pulling your most senior and experienced cybersecurity experts away from operational duties to assist in the process, which is generally not the most efficient use of their time.This also requires involvement from your internal team for quality control and answering questions, so the impact is not limited to just the consultant's time being consumed. In addition to the immense cost of hiring a cybersecurity consultant at $300/hr+ to write this documentation for you, the time to schedule a consultant, provide guidance and get the deliverable product can take months.

The PCI DSS is a requirement that applies to all Merchants, regardless of size of the company, how many transactions you process or what processor you use to process the transactions. You may have overlooked the fine print when you signed your Merchant agreement, but if you do accept credit or debit cards, you are legally bound to be compliant with the PCI DSS. This is why you should care about PCI DSS - It is arguably the most critical issue facing businesses in terms of liability.
The business justification for purchasing a PCI DSS Cybersecurity Policy & Standards is quite straightforward - non-compliance with the PCI DSS is evidence of professional negligence and your business insurance will not cover your losses if you cannot prove that you were compliant with the PCI DSS at the time of an incident involving the loss of credit card data or fraudulent claims.
