Meeting PCI Compliance in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments is challenging, but even more so is maintaining compliance on a day-to-day basis. When security compliance is managed manually, there are significant time and costs associated with doing so and it's difficult to demonstrate compliance to auditors and business partners.
Read the eBook, 6 Steps to Overcoming PCI DSS Compliance Challenges in Multi-Cloud and Hybrid Environments to understand:
• Inherent challenges in PCI DSS compliance across multi-cloud and hybrid cloud landscapes
• The struggles companies face maintaining the tools and staff required to remain compliant
• What to look for in solutions to address the complexities of meeting and maintaining compliance
Find out how you can effectively attain and continuously meet PCI DSS Compliance in multi-cloud and hybrid environments.
With the application economy in full swing, more organizations are turning to Continuous Testing and DevOps development practices in order to quickly roll out applications that reflect the ever-changing needs of tech-savvy, experience-driven consumers.
Rigorous data they need, in the right formats. This forces teams to postpone their testing until the next sprint. As a result, organizations like yours are increasingly looking for ways to overcome the challenges of poor quality data and slow, manual data provisioning. They are also concerned about compliance and data privacy when using sensitive information for testing. CA Test Data Manager can help you mitigate all these concerns, so you’re positioned to achieve real cost savings.

Compliance and risk management issues affect small and medium-sized businesses. They are not just a concern for larger, public companies, but smaller companies have fewer resources to deal with the regulatory demands that affect them.
Instead of hiring expensive external resources to ensure compliance, invest in financial compliance cloud technology to continuously monitor and provide feedback on your compliance efforts. It will lower long-term costs, improve collaboration, and increase confidence in data security and financial reports.
A Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) audit can be passed by complying with the bare minimum requirements, but that falls short of the purpose of it: to secure and protect cardholder data.
Meeting compliance is about passing an audit at a specific point in time and also maintaining it after the audit. The real challenge is sustaining continuous compliance to avoid costly breaches at the hands of motivated and skilled adversaries.
Indeed, as detailed in Verizon's "2017 Payment Security Report," nearly half (45%) of the companies examined between 2015 and 2016 were not fully PCI DSS compliant.
This guide describes the need for continuous monitoring and offers a blueprint for creating a continuous security practice. As a result, continuous monitoring will give your organization the most comprehensive view of its global perimeter, and empower you to proactively identify and address potential threats enabled by vulnerabilities in software or weak system configurations.

Tripwire Enterprise combines real-time change detection, comprehensive configuration auditing, continuous policy compliance management, and rapid configuration remediation in a single solution. By integrating these Tripwire solutions, you can correlate all suspicious events with changes to take control of threats across all events and changes.
Unlike others, Tripwire solutions identify the events that matter most-those that pose the real security risks or take you out of compliance. And they help you discover those events immediately, while you can still contain the damage.
Continuous Monitoring has become an overused and overhyped term in security circles, driven by US Government mandate (now called Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation). But that doesn’t change the fact that monitoring needs to be a cornerstone of your security program, within the context of a risk-based paradigm. This paper from Securosis discusses Continuous Security Monitoring, including how to do it, and the most applicable use cases they have seen in the real world. It also provides a step-by-step guide for things to do for each use case to move forward with a monitoring initiative.
Securing cloud environments is different from securing traditional data centers and endpoints.
The dynamic nature of the cloud requires continuous assessment and automation to avoid
misconfigurations, compromises, and breaches.
It can also be difficult to gain complete visibility across dynamic and rapidly changing cloud
environments — limiting your ability to enforce security at scale. On top of these challenges, cloud
governance is critical to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and security policies as
Because cloud deployments are not just implemented once and left untouched, organizations need
to consider how to integrate security into their CI/CD pipeline and software development lifecycle.
Implementing a security solution that addresses cloud challenges requires deep security and cloud
expertise that organizations often do not have.
Once in the cloud, organizations manage and create environments via automation, adapt their
workloads to changes by automa
Increased regulatory requirements, the need for transparency, and the desire to better manage and mitigate risks have combined to make Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) top of mind for both business and Information Technology (IT) executives. Business managers and IT security managers must work collaboratively and continuously to control access and authorization, guarding against fraud and mistakes, while providing the clear visibility that is prerequisite for sound corporate oversight to ensure profitability and compliance.
