PCI DSS: Requirement 7   Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know

This requirement is a part of "Implement Strong Access Control Measures" set of PCI DSS requirements. It states that to ensure critical data can only be accessed by authorized personnel, systems and processes must be in place to limit access based on need to know and according to job responsibilities. "Need to know" is when access rights are granted to only the least amount of data and privileges needed to perform a job.
