The PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a set of policies, procedures, administrative undertakings and technical safeguards designed to secure cardholder data handled by the various players in the payment card industry.
The standard is maintained and updated regularly by the PCI SSC (PCI Security Standards Council), comprising the five major card brands American Express, JCB International, MasterCard Incorporated, Visa Inc, and Discover Financial Service namely.
PCI-DSS compliance is mandatory for any organization handling payment card data. The nature of PCI-DSS Compliance validation varies based on the organization’s transaction volume.
The PCI-DSS lists 12 compliance requirements categorized into six ‘Control Objectives’ addressing a range of areas of concern in information security. Microsoft advises against using Microsoft 365 to store and process card and cardholder information. Therefore, you must either prove to the auditor that you have the necessary safeguards against leaks or conclusively demonstrate that you don’t use Exchange Online, SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business to store sensitive cardholder data.
PCI-DSS does not recommend the use of cloud-based information systems for use by in-scope organizations. In case you do use Microsoft 365, you might have encountered the following issues while managing PCI-DSS Compliance:
Microsoft 365 offers the Compliance Search tool to navigate through the audit log. But it only allows one to search for specific content and not for specific audit events. This complicates the entire process of pulling up data for compliance audits.
Microsoft 365 falls short when it comes to regulation mapped compliance reports. There is no comprehensive collection of reports mapped to the PCI-DSS regulatory standard.
