Mapping Censys ASM Platform to the PCI DSS Framework


March 18, 2021


The PCI DSS framework is an industry standard for securing cardholder data around the world. The standard applies to all entities that process, store, or transmit cardholder data, including both technical and operational system control requirements. Like most compliance frameworks, PCI DSS is a continuous process by which organizations assess, remediate and report the details of findings and how they’ve been resolved.

PCI DSS Compliance means that your systems adhere to what PCI considers “best practice” when it comes to protecting cardholder data. Adherence to the standard instills customer trust and confidence in you, the organization, as well as better risk management practices through iterative systematic assessment. PCI DSS Compliance improves your reputation with acquirers and payment brands alike – just the partners your business needs to succeed.
