HALOCK White Paper on Leveraging Compensating Controls for Reducing Costs for PCI DSS Compliance
This whitepaper is designed to provide guidance to merchants and service providers seeking to reduce costs while achieving PCI Compliance. It provides specifics about a compensating control used to address PCI DSS Requirement 11.5 and how to use end point security to fulfill the intent of the requirement. PCI DSS compliance can cost most large merchants hundreds of thousands of dollars or more to remediate. PCI spending categories include people, processes, and procedures as well as technology controls to automate many of the manual processes for protecting cardholder data, and for proving that cardholder data is being protected at all times.
