SANS’ Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense include a set of a quick wins” that represent a consensus-based view of the most impactful cybersecurity steps you can take to protect your systems and critical data. Do these first – and do them well – to address the advanced targeted threats. facing your organization today.

A bonus benefit of introducing these controls to your environment is they also overlap with many of the requirements of the PCI DSS, including the updates found in version 3.0 of the standard. For example, PCI DSS Requirement 5 now calls for organizations to evaluate and protect against evolving malware threats, which overlaps with SANS quick wins, CSC 5-1 and 5-2. Also, the updated PCI DSS Req. 6 states that organizations should identify and apply a risk ranking to files and vulnerabilities, which coincides with SANS quick win 4-1.

Join us for this informative webinar, where we’ll dig into these and other such examples to show you how to simultaneously address SANS best practices and PCI DSS requirements, leading to a compliant – and more secure – position.
