From the Inside Flap

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Handbook

With the significant increase of pay-ment card use and rapid advances in technology, today's organizations enjoy a tremendous amount of benefits brought about by the widespread use of payment cards. However, despite the significant benefits, organizations must address the specific challenges associated with protecting their cardholder data and cardholder data environments.

Holding the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) up to the light of day, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Handbook helps organizations proactively protect customer account data, providing a one-stop resource for PCI compliance, including coverage of requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design, and other protective measures.

Written by industry expert Timothy Virtue, this timely book guides, mentors, and assists organizations along their journey to compliance with the PCI DSS and can be used as an initial primer on PCI compliance as well as a reference to support the maintenance and ongoing commitment to PCI compliance. It offers suggested strategies and coverage of topics, including:

  • An overall view of the essential components and best practices of a successful information security program

  • The network requirements, including configuration, documentation, and testing requirements that must be in place in order to properly secure cardholder data

  • The requirements necessary to ensure cardholders are properly protected in the event of a breach or other unauthorized disclosure

  • The use of anti-virus software and security patches in order to minimize the overall vulnerability of the cardholder data environment

  • Guidelines for developing PCI DSS– compliant Web-based applications

  • How organizations should manage access control to the sensitive cardholder data

  • How networks must be monitored and tested and what kind of audit trails must be established

  • The importance of developing, maintaining, and distributing an information security policy

PCI compliance is not a one-time event or a checked box on an audit form, but an ongoing, sustained process. Filled with practical advice with information that organizations can utilize to achieve and maintain continuous compliance with PCI DSS, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Handbook is an authoritative guide that helps readers understand how the PCI DSS requirements fit into every organization's security framework.

The PCI-DSS is a changing standard. We are now on version 3. The publish date means this must be PCI-DSS version 1 which is really not relevant.

With so much media attention these days on breaches of security by hackers intent upon stealing sensitive customer financial data, this handbook is a must-have to protect your customers and the reputation of your company. Written in a easy, jargon-free style, the handbook is like a cookbook for credit card security. One of the key chapters concerns the importance of audit trails and network monitoring and testing.

The book takes the reader through the background and approach of the PCI DSS standards. After providing a pretty general overview on data security for those needing a refresher or introduction on the topic for the first 40 pages or so, the next section of the book takes the reader through the PCI DSS Control Objectives and Associated Standards in detail, providing both the verbatim language, as well as tips, explanation and commentary on the standards to ease implementation. Following this extremely useful breakdown, the author concludes with some best practices and a comprehensice PCI DSS glossary. A great resource for the organization looking to implement PCI DSS.

With the subprime meltdown now in full swing, credit card defaults and fraud could be the next shoe to drop. Virtue's book is in an easily read cookbook style. Test your security system against Virtue's recommendations now.
