The Saturn Partners find strong niche in the Retail Industry

The Saturn Partners utilizes expertise in retail sector under PCI Level 1 DSS Standards…

PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) are technical and operational requirements set by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to protect cardholder data. The Council is responsible for managing security standards, while the payment card brands enforce compliance. The standards apply to all organization’s that store, process or transmit cardholder data – with guidance for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions.

All merchants that accept payment cards are required to obey PCI DSS regulations. PCI DSS requirements are best practice steps for security procedures. To view the specific standards, visithttps://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/.

 

The Saturn Partners specializes in helping clients in the retail industry build and maintain a secure network on all platforms..using several steps loosely structured, of course, to fit your specific environment:

 

  • Install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect cardholder data.
  • ·         Create new and innovate system passwords and other security parameters.


Protect Cardholder Data

  • ·         Protect stored cardholder data.
  • Encrypt transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks.


Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program

  • Use and regularly update anti-virus software.
  • Develop and maintain secure systems and applications.


Implement Strong Access Control Measures

  • Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know.
  • Assign a unique ID to each person with computer access.
  • Restrict physical access to cardholder data.


Regularly Monitor and Test Networks

  • Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data.
  • Regularly test security systems and processes.


Maintain an Information Security Policy

  • ·         Maintain a policy that addresses information security.


Steps 3 & 4 of the PCI DSS Requirements specify that cardholder data, including Primary Account Number (PAN), cardholder name, and expiration date need to be protected when stored (data “at rest”) or during transmission across public networks (data “in flight”). When cardholder data is managed and managed in the cloud, companies need to ensure they are taking the proper steps to sustain compliance, which is an extremely complex task. The latest version of PCI DSS magnifies the complexity of PCI cloud compliance. The new requirements do not provide detailed guidance on virtualization concepts such as multi-tenancy and shared responsibility.
