6 Steps to Overcoming PCI DSS Compliance Challenges in Multi-Cloud and Hybrid Environments

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) applies to organizations that use or operate a card-processing ecosystem such as point-of-sale devices and Web shopping applications. The standards are maintained by the PCI Security Standards Council and consist of technical and operational requirements to protect cardholder data.

PCI DSS compliance can help to ensure that data breaches resulting from inadequate security controls do not result in the loss of payment card data.

As companies migrate to the cloud, adopt multiple cloud service providers and maintain on-premises environments, achieving PCI DSS Compliance becomes increasingly more complex due to the changing nature of cloud environments.

6 Steps to Overcoming PCI DSS Compliance Challenges in Multi-Cloud and Hybrid Environments eBook explains what it takes to achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance across all your environments and what to consider when evaluating PCI DSS solutions.

"Alert Logic lets us go beyond simply being PCI compliant, both by taking time-consuming, ongoing compliance tasks off our hands and more important, being a security partner who’s monitoring our AWS environment constantly."
