The PCI DSS is a set of requirements and best practices that aim to protect cardholder data and prevent security breaches and fraud.
While there’s a lot of depth and complexity to PCI Compliance the key components include:
Build and Maintain a Secure Network:
Install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect cardholder data. Do not use vendor-supplied defaults for system passwords and other security parameters.
Protect Cardholder Data:
Protect stored cardholder data. Encrypt transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks.
Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program:
Use and regularly update antivirus software or programs. Develop and maintain secure systems and applications.
Implement Strong Access Control Measures:
Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know. Assign a unique ID to each person with computer access. Restrict physical access to cardholder data.
Regularly Monitor and Test Networks:
Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data. Regularly test security systems and processes.
Maintain an Information Security Policy:
Maintain a policy that addresses information security.
It’s important to note that achieving and maintaining PCI compliance is an ongoing process, not a one-time event. Organizations are required to undergo regular assessments and audits to ensure continued compliance and to adapt to changes in technology and security threats. Additionally, compliance does not guarantee immunity from security breaches, but it significantly reduces the risk of such incidents.
