Restrict access to cardholder data by business need to know

Test 7.2.3

7.2.3 Confirm that the access control systems have a default “deny-all” setting.

Without a mechanism to restrict access based on user’s need to know a user may unknowingly be granted access to cardholder data. Access control systems automate the process of restricting access and assigning privileges. Additionally a default “deny-all” setting ensures no one is granted access until and unless a rule is established specifically granting such access. Entities may have one or more access controls systems to manage user access. Note: Some access control systems are set by default to “allow-all” thereby permitting access unless/until a rule is written to specifically deny it.
