In this best practices guide, we’ll cover some of the practical steps organizations can take to accelerate the shift towards PCI DSS v4.0—critical security control themes to consider and solutions in the existing security stack that can help with the transition.
Organizations today operate in a challenging business environment. Their workforce is constantly changing and the business processes the workforce performs are distributed across an increasing number of applications. The average worker today uses over nine applications. Ensuring these workers don’t do anything that could have a negative financial impact on the organization is no easy task.
Protecting cardholder data in today’s dynamic data environments has never been more difficult. The first step to PCI compliance is scoping—identifying where you store and process cardholder data and then segmenting that environment from the rest of your systems.
With the influx of big box stores and national retail chains, many small to medium-sized merchants are finding it increasingly difficult to compete. Few of these locally owned, often family-run businesses have the budget or technical resources to build their own inventory management, supply chain, point-of-sale, or other sophisticated systems like the big players have. That’s why more than 5,000 leading mid-market retailers turn to Epicor.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) engaged Coalfire Systems Inc. (Coalfire), as a respected Payment Card Industry (PCI) Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), to conduct an independent technical assessment of their HPE SecureData Payments solution. Coalfire did not conduct technical testing for this assessment. The assessment was to identify the potential impact to the number of PCI DSS 3.2 controls applicable to merchants using encryption solutions based on HPE SecureData Payments.
