At 7Security, we believe every success should be celebrated – from completing yet another successful project or hearing good news from our clients… to, in this case, having the pleasure of calling one of our colleagues a Qualified Security Assessor for the first time!
Yasen Georgiev, who joined us earlier this year as Information Security Auditor, recently added the QSA title under his belt, and we cannot be happier for him. Yasen is now officially part of our QSA team and will be working closely with fintechs, helping them maintain their PCI DSS compliance.
‘PCI DSS is a unique standard’, shared Yasen, ‘it’s not fully technical; there are many controls related to people – the way employees implement and follow their security policies. I find the human factor here very intriguing. What also thrills me is not just assessing a company’s compliance with the standard but seeing various architectures and solutions in the process. I especially enjoy the consulting part of my role – sharing my know-how and providing support where needed. It’s great to offer the client an angle they haven’t thought about that ends up saving them costs and effort in managing their PCI environment. It’s my personal contribution to the fintech industry.’
‘I can’t say becoming a QSA was an easy journey’, added Yasen, ‘It had its challenges, but throughout the whole process, I felt supported by my colleagues at 7Security, and I learned a lot from them and the PCI Council training. At 7Security, we are adept in cloud technologies and the ways they simplify compliance, especially for startups who are going through their first PCI DSS. I feel lucky to be working next to people with such vast experience and interests in modern cloud solutions. Here, I can put my skills to good use, but I am also challenged daily to learn and grow.’
We wish Yasen many exciting projects. We are confident we will have plenty of occasions to share more success stories about him in the future.
