PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard)

Regularly test security systems and processes

Req 11.2

11.2 Run internal and external network vulnerability scans at least quarterly and after any significant change in the network (such as new system component installations changes in network topology firewall rule modifications product upgrades). Note: Multiple scan reports can be combined for the quarterly scan process to show that all systems were scanned and all applicable vulnerabilities have been addressed. Additional documentation may be required to verify non-remediated vulnerabilities are in the process of being addressed.

For initial PCI DSS compliance it is not required that four quarters of passing scans be completed if the assessor verifies 1) the most recent scan result was a passing scan 2) the entity has documented policies and procedures requiring quarterly scanning and 3) vulnerabilities noted in the scan results have been corrected as shown in a re-scan(s). For subsequent years after the initial PCI DSS review four quarters of passing scans must have occurred.
