PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard)_Req 10.8

PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard)

Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data

Req 10.8

10.8 Additional requirement for service providers only: implement a process for the timely detection and reporting of failures of critical security control systems including but not limited to failure of: – Firewalls – IDS/IPS – FIM – Anti-virus – Physical access controls – Logical access controls – Audit logging mechanisms – Segmentation controls (if used). Note: This requirement is a best practice until January 31 2018 after which it becomes a requirement.

Without formal processes to detect and alert when critical security controls fail failures may go undetected for extended periods and provide attackers ample time to compromise systems and steal sensitive data from the cardholder data environment. The specific types of failures may vary depending on the function of the device and technology in use. Typical failures include a system ceasing to perform its security function or not functioning in its intended manner; for example a firewall erasing all its rules or going offline.
