Maintaining Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance can be both difficult and expensive. For most small to medium sized organizations, it doesnt have to be as long as you have the right plan and tools in place. In this paper youll learn five steps to implement and maintain PCI DSS compliance at your organization by:
Determining your true business requirements
Inventorying locations and assets
Automating controls and control reporting
Demonstrating compliance with PCI DSS is far from a trivial exercise. This checklist will help you on your quest to achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance.
A Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) audit can be passed by complying with the bare minimum requirements, but that falls short of the purpose of it: to secure and protect cardholder data.
Meeting compliance is about passing an audit at a specific point in time and also maintaining it after the audit. The real challenge is sustaining continuous compliance to avoid costly breaches at the hands of motivated and skilled adversaries.
Indeed, as detailed in Verizon's "2017 Payment Security Report," nearly half (45%) of the companies examined between 2015 and 2016 were not fully PCI DSS compliant.
Meeting PCI Compliance in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments is challenging, but even more so is maintaining compliance on a day-to-day basis. When security compliance is managed manually, there are significant time and costs associated with doing so and it's difficult to demonstrate compliance to auditors and business partners.
Read the eBook, 6 Steps to Overcoming PCI DSS Compliance Challenges in Multi-Cloud and Hybrid Environments to understand:
Inherent challenges in PCI DSS compliance across multi-cloud and hybrid cloud landscapes
The struggles companies face maintaining the tools and staff required to remain compliant
What to look for in solutions to address the complexities of meeting and maintaining compliance
Find out how you can effectively attain and continuously meet PCI DSS Compliance in multi-cloud and hybrid environments.
