Maintaining, verifying, and demonstrating PCI DSS compliance is far from a trivial exercise. Those 12 requirements often translate into a lot of manual and labor-intensive tasks – chasing down discrepancies in asset inventory spreadsheets, removing false positives from network vulnerability assessment reports, and weeding through log data trying to make sense of it all. In fact, you may need to consult at least a dozen different tools for those dozen requirements.

Thankfully, there’s a simpler alternative. AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) consolidates the five essential capabilities you need for PCI DSS compliance. As a nearly complete PCI compliance solution, AlienVault’s USM delivers the security visibility you need in a single pane-of-glass. And it solves more than the single purpose PCI DSS compliance software alternatives do. During this webcast, you will learn how to:

Achieve, demonstrate and maintain PCI DSS compliance
Consolidate and simplify SIEM, log management, vulnerability assessment, IDS, and file integrity monitoring in a single platform
Implement effective incident response with emerging threat intelligence
Plus, you'll see how quickly and easily you can simplify and accelerate PCI DSS compliance. Register Now to secure your spot.

  • We all know… Security doesn’t equal compliance and compliance doesn’t equal security…But… you can usecompliance to getyour security projects funded.Use the “force” of compliance to improve your security.Remember… compliance is about more than reporting!

  • The updated versions of PCI DSS and PA-DSS will: Provide stronger focus on some of the greater risk areas in the threat environment Provide increased clarity on PCI DSS & PA-DSS requirements Build greater understanding on the intent of the requirements and how to apply them Improve flexibility for all entities implementing, assessing, and building to the Standards  Drive more consistency among assessors Help manage evolving risks / threats Align with changes in industry best practices Clarify scoping and reporting Eliminate redundant sub-requirements and consolidate documentation While not stated in the August document, it’s anticipated that the new standard will address issues of what falls within the scope of the standard, as well as network segmentation, and defense fortification to ward off specific threats that have been identified since the 2010 release. In addition, the new requirements are likely to address card data handling in mobile, cloud and e-commerce environments in the wake of previous guidance issued by the council.
  • Use the “force” of compliance to bolster your security monitoring / incident response program.PCI Compliance is more than just reporting – it’s about basic security hygiene – don’t focus JUST on reporting, although that is importantAutomate and consolidate as much as possible – reduces cost, complexity, and accelerates remediation.If mgmt wants to do this w/home grown or manual processes or tools (can’t get budget for more software), try open source, specifically OSSIM.

  • 3. SETTING THE STAGE… Pre-audit checklist & more
  • 4. QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF… SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. Pre-audit checklist: Where do your PCI-relevant assets live, how are they’re configured, and how are they segmented from the rest of your network? Who accesses these resources (and the other W’s… when, where, what can they do, why and how)? What are the vulnerabilities that are in your PCI-defined network – app, etc? What constitutes your network baseline? What is considered “normal/acceptable”? Ask your team… What do we NEVER want to happen in our PCI environment? How do we capture those events when they do happen? 7

  • 15. LET’S HEAR FROM YOU! ALIENVAULT POLL QUESTION What is your biggest pain point when it comes to PCI compliance? • Uncertainty about what’s on my network • Vulnerability assessment and remediation • Concerns about threat detection • Compliance reporting • None of the above – I’m a PCI Ninja!
  • 16. WHY ALIENVAULT FOR PCI DSS COMPLIANCE? All-in-one functionality • Easy management • Multiple functions without multiple consoles Automate what and where you can* • “Baked in” guidance when you can’t Flexible reporting & queries… as detailed as you want it. Threat intelligence from AlienVault Labs 19 *Disclaimer: Despite the hype, you can’t automate EVERYTHING nor would you want to. This is cyber security we’re talking about!

  • 19. WHAT’S COMING IN PCI DSS V3*? Increased clarity • Intention and application • Scoping and reporting • Eliminate redundancy, consolidate documentation Stronger focus on “greater risk areas” in the threat environment Consistency among assessors Key Goals *https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/security_standards/documents.php Key Themes Education and Awareness Increased flexibility Security as a shared responsibility Nov 7 2013 • PCI DSS v3 is published Jan 1 2014 • PCI DSS v3 becomes effective Dec 31 2014 • PCI DSS v2 expires Key Dates
  • 20. KEY TAKE-AWAYS Use the “force” of compliance to bolster your security monitoring / incident response program. PCI Compliance is more than just reporting. Automate and consolidate as much as possible. And… throw away that cover page for your TPS reports. ….But keep the red stapler. 23
