How Continuous Controls Monitoring Removes PCI Compliance Challenges

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) undergoes periodic changes soon to enhance security measures and adapt to emerging threats. Therefore It is imperative that businesses are fully prepared and remain continually compliant meaning utilising the technology of continuous controls monitoring.

Continuous controls monitoring (CCM) provides real-time monitoring of security controls and processes within an organisation’s IT environment. It helps identify security issues promptly, allowing for timely response and remediation.

Here’s how CCM can support PCI changes:

Real-time threat detection: PCI DSS compliance requires organisations to maintain a secure network, protect cardholder data, and regularly monitor systems. CCM provides real-time monitoring capabilities, detecting potential threats as they happen, and alerting relevant stakeholders. This proactive approach helps organisations respond quickly to any security incidents and minimise their impact.

Automated compliance checks: PCI DSS compliance is an ongoing process that requires organisations to regularly assess their security posture. CCM tools can automate compliance checks and provide continuous assessments of security controls. This allows organisations to identify and address compliance gaps quickly, reducing the likelihood of non-compliance during changes to PCI standards.

With our CCM platform, we are able to align to ANY regulatory framework, so you can receive the assurance that you are continually compliant.

Increased visibility: Continuous controls monitoring offers a comprehensive view of an organisation’s security environment. It enables the monitoring of critical security controls, such as access controls, system configurations, and security events. This enhanced visibility assists in maintaining compliance with PCI requirements, which may change over time.

Our Platform connects to ANY data source so you are receiving a comprehensive, single source of truth with actionable intelligence on your security posture. 

Centralised reporting and auditing: CCM solutions provides centralised reporting and auditing capabilities. This is essential for PCI compliance as it allows organisations to demonstrate adherence to the standard’s requirements to auditors and stakeholders.

At QO, our team will build bespoke reports for your teams from operational to Board level. 

Mitigating risks associated with changes: As PCI DSS standards evolve, organisations need to adapt their security measures accordingly. CCM can help monitor the effectiveness of new security controls and processes implemented in response to the changes. By continually evaluating the performance of these changes, organisations can ensure that they effectively mitigate potential risks.

Organisations should always stay up-to-date with the latest PCI requirements and work with their IT security teams to implement the appropriate CCM solutions that align with the new standards.

The QO Platform can monitor ANY control, so that you understand the effectiveness of every control you have in place.
