Protecting cardholder data though PCI DSS logging and proactive threat detection

Among PCI DSS requirements is the need for organisations to track and monitor access to network resources and cardholder data.

Log management and monitoring forms a key part of PCI DSS and is important for helping to identify anomalous activity inside a network.

Deploying, configuring, maintaining and overseeing the latest security technologies needed to perform vital monitoring functions such as asset discovery and intrusion detection can be heavily time and resource-intensive. Many security systems generate a high volume of alerts and amongst all the noise it’s easy to get buried.
