Using Cisco Security MARS to Comply With PCI Data Security Standard Requirements
Source: Cisco Systems
The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) stipulates six major requirement categories and 12 key requirement areas. The requirement areas are divided into more than 200 sub-requirements. Cisco Security MARS supports both Cisco and non-Cisco devices and provides numerous "Canned" reports, and can be used to provide necessary information required to fulfill many of these PCI-compliance-specific sub-requirements. PCI compliance is a requirement for all customers who process, transmit, or store credit card information. Through its security event monitoring, threat mitigation, and reporting features, the Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System (Cisco Security MARS) can help customers satisfy PCI compliance requirements and reporting needs. This white paper discusses how Cisco Security MARS Release 6.0 helps customers meet their PCI compliance requirements.
