Protect stored cardholder data |
PCI DSS mandates that whenever cardholder data needs to be stored, PCI compliant organizations have to utilize appropriate protection mechanisms, such as encryption, truncation of PAN and other methods of card holder data protection. This prevents attackers from gaining access to unreadable encrypted data if they were to circumvent all other security mechanisms. Action1 covers a few aspects of this section as it pertains to disk encryption at the endpoint level.
