Organizations across the globe are required to demonstrate PCI compliance to ensure that cardholder data is protected and secure from numerous internal and external threats. The challenge for most organizations is that demonstrating compliance is usually performed on an ad hoc basis and without a clear process to regularly support multiple audit requests. Most organizations struggle to gather audit data and compliance measurements due to a lack of automated compliance workflows across the organization. Some of the typical issues around PCI compliance include the following:
High cost of demonstrating compliance
Lack of standardized IT audit processes
Reporting on multiple regulations, mandates and policies
Lack of enterprise visibility and prioritization of IT risk
This whitepaper will examine PCI DSS and explain how Lumension® Compliance and IT Risk Management can help organizations reduce the cost of addressing compliance by streamlining and automating the IT audit process, unifying control and compliance frameworks, automating assessment and remediation processes, and enabling continuous monitoring of their compliance and IT risk management posture.
