Dimension Data to help Krungthai Card comply with PCI DSS

Nurdianah Md Nur | Dec. 9, 2014
Cardholder data, access control, network and endpoint security will be beefed up with the new implementation.

Thailand's Krungthai Card Public Co Ltd (KTC) has chosen Dimension Data to deploy the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to ensure that its operations comply with regulatory security standards.

The global ICT solutions and services provider will use the PCI module of Splunk software — which it resells — to cover five areas of security compliance. The five areas are network, endpoint, access control, cardholders' data, and the monitoring and testing of applications.

 The PCI solution will collect and consolidate logs from various devices and servers including real-time capturing of log-ins of applications. Dimension Data will customise a dashboard for KTC's Centralise Log  Management so that it can generate standard and ad-hoc reports from all logs, conduct audit trails, and analyse machine data from one place to generate insights.

PCI DSS is a set of security requirements that are stipulated by regulatory and governance organisations to deal with major security IT issues. It is thus important for businesses to understand them and develop a roadmap of targets and goals to build a secure IT infrastructure.

Incorporated in 1996 as a then-subsidiary of the KrungThai Bank, KTC is now a leading consumer finance provider in Thailand with more than 2.2 million accounts.
