Real-Time Systems Monitoring for PCI DSS Compliance
Easily access specific investigations, alarms and reports that are automatically associated with the correct PCI DSS asset categories with the LogRhythm PCI DSS Compliance Suite.
Reports can be scheduled for periodic generation and delivery or generated on demand by the security officer and other LogRhythm users. Investigations and alarms can be leveraged for immediate analysis of activities that impact the organization’s cardholder data systems so areas of noncompliance can be identified in real-time.
Automate PCI DSS Compliance
- Build and maintain a secure network: Monitor firewalls and network protection systems (e.g., IDS/IPS and UTM), as well as PCI-mandated behavior such as removing default passwords.
- Protect cardholder data: Monitor user behavior and configuration changes that may jeopardize the security of cardholder data.
- Maintain a vulnerability management program: monitor anti-malware and vulnerability products for rapid exposure assessment, incident handling and response.
- Strong access controls: Monitor access to cardholder systems and data and identify suspicious behavior.
- Monitor and test networks: Establish an automated trail for all system components as mandated by PCI DSS requirements 10.2–10.7.
- Maintain an information security policy: Support security best practices for PCI standards.
PCI DSS Requirements
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) was developed to encourage and enhance cardholder data security and facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally.
The PCI DSS standards apply to all organizations that store, process or transmit cardholder data. All affected organizations must be PCI compliant. The Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA DSS) is derived from PCI DSS, and its individual requirements align with PCI DSS requirements.
The first PCI DSS standard is a combined effort from the results of several independent company data protection standards. The council is an open global forum for the ongoing development, enhancement, storage, dissemination and implementation of security standards for account data protection.
