The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of minimum requirements, created by the PCI Security Standard Council, that every business processing payment cards (for example, credit or debit cards) must meet in order to protect cardholder data.
The standard's purpose is to enforce a thoroughly vetted set of security policies. These policies are designed to prevent the compromise of customer financial data held by merchants or service providers, obtained as a result of payment card transactions.
Cygna Auditor monitors all successful and failed data activity such as file or folder creation, access, updates, deletions, who made the changes and when they were made.
Cygna Auditor's built-in and custom alerting notifies you of unusual activity such as scripted permission changes or mass file updates typical of ransomware.
Review and keep secured system access to a minimum with Cygna Auditor's group reports that show membership of secured system users and administrators.
Keeping group membership current is only half the battle – you must ensure that permissions on secured systems stay correct. Cygna Auditor's permissions reports enable you to be sure access is correct.
Cygna Auditor addresses Requirements 7 (Restrict access to cardholder data by business need to know) and 10 (Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data) of the PCI DSS standard.
