- Segregation of Duties: Are duties and areas of responsibilities segregated in order to reduce opportunities for un-authorised modification or misuse of organization assets?
- Are strong cryptography and security protocols, such as SSLTLS, SSH or IPSEC, used to safeguard sensitive cardholder data during transmission over open, public networks?
- Is a technical solution for data loss prevention -i.e., systems designed to automatically monitor for data leakage -considered essential to enterprise risk management?
- Does the provider utilize Network Access Control based enforcement for continuous monitoring of its virtual machine population and virtual machine sprawl prevention?
- Have forms that are used to collect cardholder payment information been designed for easy removal of the cardholder information when processing has been completed?
