Executive Summary

PCI DSS applies to those organizations that store, transmit or process cardholder information payments; encompassing service providers, merchant acquirers, third party processors and even data storage entities. Processors represent organizations of significant transaction volume making them tantalizing targets for attack. The breaches in late 2008 and early 2009 of RBS World Pay and Heartland Payment Systems, which compromised over an estimated 100 million cardholders, exemplify the irresistible allure of transaction processors. The PCI DSS foundation consists of 12 fundamental Requirements(R) organized into 6 major functional areas that focus on the challenges of:

  • Data protection
  • Vulnerability management
  • Effective anti-malware
  • Cross-platform support
This whitepaper examines the PCI DSS requirements and highlights key capabilities and how Lumension's portfolio of solutions helps organizations that must comply with PCI address many of these compliance challenges.
