This paper explores the subject of continuous compliance versus audit-driven compliance, as well as how an ongoing approach to compliance makes compliance a positive force for securing data and systems.
Recent surveys of IT managers revealed two commonly held beliefs: database regulations are the most challenging to comply with, and of all regulatory standards, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) the toughest.
McAfee® Virtual Patching for Databases shields databases from the risk presented by unpatched vulnerabilities by detecting and preventing attempted attacks and intrusions in real time without requiring database downtime or application testing.
Compliance does not automatically equate to security. A company may be compliant with a host of regulatory requirements, while its databases remain exposed and vulnerable. Learn how McAfee Database Security can help prevent such vulnerabilities.
NPMD solutions are typically not directly involved in the actual card cardholder transaction. However, given that many can potentially capture and transmit cardholder data they must be viewed as an integral part of a business’ PCI DSS compliance strategy, especially when investigating data breaches for the purposes of reporting or remediation.
Therefore, beyond satisfying your service delivery monitoring and troubleshooting requirements, be sure to verify your NPMD solution protects cardholder data and aids your efforts in PCI DSS compliance.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) establishes standard requirements protecting cardholder information. It applies to all entities that store, process, or transmit cardholder data, such as retail merchants, payment processors, and banks.
This white paper examines the necessary requirements to adhere to PCI DSS, the implications of non-compliance as well as how effective event log management and network vulnerability management play a key role in achieving compliance.
Working together, the major payment card providers have developed a set of data security standards and created a council for enforcing them. Although the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has become a global requirement, many organizations are lagging in compliance.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global security program created to increase confidence in the payment card industry and reduce risks to PCI members, merchants, service providers and consumers. It was developed by the major credit card companies as a guideline to help organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud.
With the recent rise in data breaches and identity thefts, implementing a sound information security program is no longer optional. Companies processing credit card information are encouraged to embrace and implement sound data protection strategies to protect the confidentiality and integrity of payment information. Some of the challenges for achieving PCI compliance are outlined in this white paper, as well as successful tips to help organizations navigate through them.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard requires merchants and transaction processors to protect customer data, and firewalls play a major role in the process. This paper was written by Matt Sarrello, CISSP, contributing editor at Ziff Davis Enterprise and Michael Steinhart, senior editor at Ziff Davis Enterprise.
