PCI Compliance for Small Business: Using Router-Based Security to Protect Cardholder Data
Source: Cisco Systems
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) was developed from an earlier regulatory program from VISA called the Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP). Any organization that accepts, processes, or stores credit card information must comply with the standards set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. Cisco IOS Security technologies provide a variety of tools to help ensure compliance like Cisco IOS Software zone-based policy firewall can define network security zones, prevent action on cardholders' data being leaked outside of security zones, and apply policies to inspect and mitigate malware threats and unauthorized data access and transfers, Cisco IOS IPS effectively analyzes network traffic for malicious code and mitigates attacks, etc.
