Goals of PCI DSS:
- Build and Maintain a Secure Network
- Protect Cardholder Data
- Maintain a VulnerabilityManagement Program
- Implement Strong Access Control Measures
- Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
- Maintain an Information Security Policy
The security controls and processes required by PCI DSS are vital for protectingcardholder account data, including the PAN – the primary account number printed on the front of a payment card. Merchants and any other service providers involved with payment card processing must never store sensitive authentication data after authorization. This includes sensitive data that is printed on a card, or stored on a card’s magnetic stripe or chip – and personal identification numbers entered by the cardholder. This document presents the objectives of PCI DSS and related 12 requirements.
PCI DSS is best achieved in two phases. Phase one is setting the controls, where your organization plans and commits to becoming compliant. This phase typically involves planning, leadership commitment, and setting up of basic infrastructures such as Firewall, Anti-virus, password management, data storage & encryption, identity management and more. Phase two is monitoring those controls to include vulnerability scanning, monitoring for configuration changes, intrusion detection, user behavior monitoring, and incident response.
