Overview

Regularly test security systems and processes in line with PCI DSS requirements

Regular assessment of systems and processes is among the key controls mandated by PCI DSS to protect cardholder data.

Requirement 11 of the standard outlines the need for organisations to perform internal and external penetration testing at least annually, or after any significant changes to infrastructure.

Testing

What is a PCI DSS penetration test?

A penetration test is a type of cyber security assessment designed to identify, exploit and help address vulnerabilities.

PCI DSS penetration testing is designed to include assessment of network infrastructure and applications from both outside and inside an organisation’s network environment.

Scope

What needs to be assessed?

PCI DSS penetration testing must be performed on an organisation’s complete cardholder data environment (CDE) and includes any systems which may impact the security of the CDE.

A PCI pen test will help to identify:

  • Unsafe system and network configurations
  • Improper access controls
  • Rogue wireless networks
  • Coding vulnerabilities like XSS and SQL injection
  • Broken authentication and session management
  • Encryption flaws
