If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement:  Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow.  Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

Patches correct bugs, flaws and provide enhancements, which can prevent potential user impact, improve user experience and potentially save your technicians time researching and repairing issues that could have already been resolved or prevented with an existing update. Clients generally understand that their systems need to be patched, but they likely do not have the expertise to comfortably approve and install patches without help. When operating within the IT services industry, patching is one of the first areas that competitors auditing your clients will assess. Developing best practices to manage the risks associated with the approval and deployment of patches is critical to your IT department's service offering.

Engagement with customers online has evolved from novelty to necessity, with an estimated $202 billion spent in 2011 and projected 10% growth to $327 billion in 2016, according to Forrester Research. Businesses are maneuvering to connect with the growing pool of online customers, but the move to eCommerce brings new security risks with the exchange of sensitive consumer information, including cardholder data and personally identifiable information that can enable identity theft. At stake is reputation of brand, ongoing access to merchant credit lines, and substantial penalties and remediation in the event of a breach. This white paper elucidates the aspects of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliance that must be considered when choosing a secure environment for servers involved in eCommerce. Whether deciding to outsource or keep data hosting in-house, any company collecting, storing or transmitting customer cardholder data needs to be compliant, and this document helps pinpoint the specific concerns and standards a company should be aware of when choosing how to keep their data secure. Understanding requirements and best practices for security policies and procedures, physical safeguards, and security technologies is essential to establishing cardholder data security and meeting QSA and SAQ audit requirements.

Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.
