The security and compliance sector evolves very quickly at the best of times, so Mathieu has to keep the company’s finger on the pulse at all times. Thanks to The VigiTrust Global Advisory Board helps achieve this; it provides the VigiTrust team with a unique insight into the state of the industry from a technical, regulatory, and research perspective. "A lot is going on in Machine Learning, AI, and Quantum, not forgetting blockchain. VigiTrust is involved in a few innovation projects with research partners globally and aims at delivering new innovative solutions to clients and partners at all times," says Mathieu.

Accor and VigiTrust help thousands of hotels to achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance, as outlined in a case study by the PCI Council. The platform allows Accor's PCI DSS team to collaboratively assist each property in their PCI-compliance effort. The overall PCI DSS team can collaboratively help small merchants. VigiTrust, for its part, works with Accor to provide support to hotels, while multiple QSAs, working with Accor at various hubs, connect to the platform to carry out preparation work, assist with hotel compliance, document site visits, conduct gap analyses, manage evidence collection and remediation work, and conduct QSA assessments.

VigiTrust will continue to innovate and address the ever-evolving legal and industry standards landscape regarding data protection and compliance for the days to come.
