Establishing, maintaining, and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for everyone in payment card processing—including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as companies that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data. With approximately three hundred individual requirements to address, organizations subject to the standard have their work cut out for them.
This white paper will explain how Palo Alto Networks® Next Generation Security Platform allows PCI system operators to significantly enhance security and exceed PCI DSS requirements through segmentation and mitigating risks of malware and unpatched systems.
The theft of credit card data continues to grow at an alarming rate. It is costly to credit card companies and merchants, and it undermines consumer confidence. The Payment Card Industry has developed the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which includes 12 requirements for protecting cardholder data. Despite substantial investments made in securing their networks, organizations are realizing that being PCI compliant does not mean an enterprise is protected against advanced cyberattacks.
Establishing, maintaining and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for all entities involved in payment card processing – including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data (SAD). For all system components included in or connected to the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE), organizations must comply with more than three hundred requirements. It is in every organization’s best interest, therefore, to take advantage of network segmentation provisions stated in the PCI DSS to effectively isolate their CDE and thereby decrease the amount of infrastructure that is considered in scope.
