PCI DSS Part 4 – Goals and Requirements

In this video we go into more detail regarding the PCI DSS framework. We take a look at the 12 elements that comprise it along with its goals which consist of:

  • Build and maintain a secure network – utilize firewalls, routers and other devices to protect the network and its resources. These devices should implement secure configurations: don’t use default configurations and settings!
  • Data at rest and in transit must be secured.
  • Implement a vulnerability management program consisting of risk management and secure development standards for software.
  • Implement access control measures – define what objects a subject is permitted access to and what actions can be performed on them.
  • Monitor and test networks – perform regular testing and develop policies focused on security.
