23 Key Controls Systems / Technology Network Segmentation System Hardening Encryption Anti-Virus / Anti-Malware Access Controls Password Controls Physical Access Controls Centralized Logging File Integrity Monitoring IDS / IPS Scanning (Wireless & Vulnerabilities)

24 Key Controls Procedures Systems Build Encryption Key Management Secure Applications Development Security Testing (Vuln Scanning & Pen Tests) Log Review Annual Risk Assessment Policies / Procedures Annual Review & Issue Security Awareness Incident Response Annual TestingPeople Background Checks, Security Awareness

25 What’s in Scope? Firewalls / Switches / Routers / Network Appliances / Servers / Workstations / Laptops

28 Assessment Examples

29 Common Compliance Issues Scoping of project is to large Flat network and no segmentation Legacy systems, and non compliant software Lack of knowledge to interpret controls Lack of formal processes and procedures Confusion of systems scoping Storage, processing and transmitting of data with no business requirement Non compliant 3 rd parties Significant cost to full compliance Evaluation of compensating controls

30 Consequence of non compliance Monthly fine for non compliance Increased cost for processing cards Damage to brand reputation Customers sue for negligence Increased risk of security breach Costly investigative charges No safe harbour Acquirer refuses to allow card processing

31 Misconceptions Self assessment means your compliant Compliance means you wont suffer a breach Outsourcing takes away your need for compliance PCI:DSS is just about IT A single product can make you compliant Compliance can be automated

32 Tips and Take Aways Reduce your scope Ensure senior buy in Prioritise Tasks – High Medium Low Be honest and open about card holder data existence Maintain the good security practices Go beyond card data systems Be proactive with checks and controls No single product equals compliance Make someone responsible for managing compliance
