What Are Standards for Data Security Compliance?
PCI (Payment Card Industry) Standard
It’s a set of 12 specific requirements that cover six different goals. It’s very prescriptive. It says not only that you need to be secure but it tells you how to become secure. It’s more about security than compliance. The goals are things like build and maintain a secure network, protect card holder data and regularly monitor and test the networks. That’s the main standard. We manage three different standards. The first one covers everything from the physical security to logical security.
PADS (Payment Application Data Security) Standard
Another standard is called PADS for payment applications a business merchant might purchase off the shelf. For example, if you went to a restaurant and ordered a meal where the waiter used a touch-screen terminal. That terminal puts the order in the kitchen and it’s tied to an ordering database. The application also takes the credit card at the end of the meal. Those terminals, the software applications and your procedures must secure and protect data.
PTS (PIN Transaction System)
This standard is for any process that uses a device that interacts with PIN numbers or cards that use PIN numbers. Those processes, devices and unattended payment terminals, such as those used at gas station [islands], ticket kiosks, and transit systems, must be certified and compliant.
