PCI Network

InfoSight's Penetration Testing Services

The multitude of recent accounts of highly-publicized data breaches occurring in seemingly PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant and protected companies begs the question, "Does PCI compliance actually equal security?" The answer is, "Not necessarily." Payment card information is an extremely high-profile and highly targeted medium and the tactics of cybercriminals are becoming more and more sophisticated and advanced.

No organization is ever entirely secure; but with the proper defense technologies, businesses can tremendously alleviate their risk and vulnerability, and make it much more difficult for cybercriminals to breach their private networks and data. The PCI Security Standards Council's goal in forming their set of regulations and standards was to create a unified and simple method using the minimum security necessary to transmit, process, and store cardholder information.

Our penetration testing methodology includes:

  • Gathering information about the target before the test (reconnaissance)
  • Identifying all possible entry points, vulnerabilities, and weaknesses
  • Attempting an exploit to gain entry
  • Reporting back findings and providing detailed instructions for remediation

Exceeding the regular periodic audits and network scanning required by PCI standards, by utilizing managed security, yield much more value to an organization and, in most cases, actually does not end up adding as much additional expense as one may expect.

InfoSight provides a vast variety of tools, guidance, support, training resources, and other IT security services to assist organizations seeking to achieve optimum PCI compliance. We can help build and maintain high security levels, help you understand exactly what is involved in PCI compliance, and assist in developing policies and proficient practices that best fit your needs. PCI compliance standards will luckily continue to evolve and improve over time.

Here are some questions to ask to determine how vulnerable your network may be:

  • How long ago was my last vulnerability test?
  • How many changes and or upgrades has my network had since my last vulnerability test?
  • Do the counter measures I have in place to prevent an intrusion actually work?
  • What security layers should I implement next to best protect my company's assets?
  • Do I know where confidential and sensitive data is located on my network enterprise wide?
  • How do I know if my IT Security reports are accurate?
