PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard)

Identify and authenticate access to system components

Req 8.1.5

8.1.5 Manage IDs used by third parties to access support or maintain system components via remote access as follows: – Enabled only during the time period needed and disabled when not in use. – Monitored when in use.

Enabling access only for the time periods needed and disabling it as soon as it is no longer needed helps prevent misuse of these connections. Monitoring of vendor access provides assurance that vendors are accessing only the systems necessary and only during approved time frames.
