Non-Listed Encryption Solution Assessment (NESA) Documentation

By | 2017-08-31T16:30:48+00:00 August 31st, 2017|Security|

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) previously released guidance that allows Qualified Security Assessor for Point-to-Point Encryption (QSA (P2PE)) companies to complete a document related to a non-listed encryption solution assessment (NESA) to address the following: which of the PCI SSC’s P2PE standard requirements a vendor’s solution meets, and how the solution impacts a merchant’s PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance scope. In our work with both merchants and service providers, it appears that there may be some confusion regarding what this document offers and how it should be used. Per the PCI SSC’s document, Frequently Asked Questions: Assessment Guidance for Non-Listed Encryption Solutions: The aim of a non-listed encryption solution assessment is to identify the gaps between the solution and the PCI P2PE Standard and to show how use of the solution impacts a merchant’s PCI DSS assessment. A number of payment applications in [...]

Over the last 12 to 18 months, the concerns that business and IT managers voice when they think about the cloud have changed. It used to be that people thought the cloud was a security risk and you should never trust it with any sensitive information or business-critical applications. We don’t hear that as much anymore. Some slow adopters, companies that don’t often use new product categories or disruptive business models, may still feel that way, but the understanding of cloud security has changed for most everyone else. Security and cost savings no longer prime concerns When businesses are considering Microsoft Office 365 today, most of them recognize that Microsoft has created a global infrastructure with hyper-converged data centers and layers of physical and digital security that most companies could not research, design, create, and manage on their own. On the Microsoft [...]
