Value-adds for PCI auditors

Network security professionals make the best network security auditors because they not only know how to diagnose network security problems, but they can also provide solutions for remediation.

As a QSA, what are some value-adds that I can offer my customers to set myself apart from other QSAs?

Many QSAs come from an auditing background and are very good at the auditing portion of PCI. To provide more customer value, focus on understanding tactical security. In talking with customers, many auditors can tell them what is wrong, but few can provide ideas or suggestions on how to become compliant. The QSAs who are security professionals first and auditors second may well set themselves apart from their competition.
