IT professionals keep businesses running: they often manage networks, field support requests, give trainings, oversee deployments, and serve as database admins—all in the course of a day. Data security and compliance are added responsibilities on top of maintaining basic business operations, so separate and thorough tracking methods can help make the entire organization more secure.
We include a PCI DSS IT checklist PDF in our PCI Guide to give IT teams the support they need to fulfill each PCI DSS requirement, one by one.
What is PCI DSS?
IT data security tasks
PCI DSS IT checklists
When you work with PCI IT checklists, you can keep track of compliance tasks individually, or as a group. With our IT checklists, you can print out lists or use them electronically. Many IT departments print off the checklists for every member of their team to make sure no one is missing any important PCI DSS compliance tasks.
IT pros have told us that they love our PCI guides specifically for the checklists. They use them to help when filling out their PCI Report on Compliance (ROC) or preparing for a PCI audit. The lists provide a starting point and help keep teams and individuals on task.
Interactive PCI compliance IT checklists
There are twelve lists—one to cover each requirement—and within each are interactive fields and checklists. Managers and team members can enter to whom the requirement list is assigned, its assigned completion date, and review date.
As interactive PDFs, the checklists can be checked and unchecked electronically. So, teams can keep track of progress on the PDF versions, or just print them out and take them on the go. This feature also doubles as a way to easily document general PCI compliance efforts at your organization.

We help businesses avoid data breaches because for us, data security is personal. Our CEO Brad Caldwell founded SecurityMetrics in 2000, two years after a data breach at his small business left him without affordable options for remediation.
We create content like our PCI Guide and Checklists to help businesses close security gaps and prevent data breaches. We educate our customers and readers to protect themselves from hackers and cybercriminals who want to steal data or collect ransoms.
