3.4. Render PAN Unreadable in Storage   Storage of PANs must be protected properly both in primary and backup storage

This section of PCI DSS requires that all PANs (primary account numbers) that are stored must be encrypted properly to prevent attackers from stealing PANs in case of data breach. Different mechanisms depend on the data storage type being used. Action1 covers the endpoint-level aspect of this section of PCI to make sure that endpoints in the CDE are properly protected and remain compliant.

3.4.1.a: Full Disk Encryption Authentication
    Verify that full disk encryption authentication process is implemented separately from native OS authentication
3.4.1.c: Encryption of Removable Media
