Splunk® App for PCI Compliance

User Manual

PCI Compliance Posture dashboard

The PCI Compliance Posture scorecard provides a summary of how compliant you are in each of the major PCI data security standards (DSS) requirements based on the data you are collecting in your environment. The PCI data security standard requires that you monitor your log data on a daily basis to look for anomalies that can impact cardholder data within the cardholder data environment.

Use this dashboard to see the total number of new issues, open issues, and closed issues found in your PCI environment. Compare the current status with the historical trend. View a summary of each requirement to see the current status of compliance for each control section. Use this dashboard to open individual Requirement Scorecards or to view the incidents within the Incident Review dashboard. Identify the issue owners and respond efficiently.

  • If there are any new issues, the status indicator will be red.

The numbers indicate the number of new, open, and closed compliance issues. These statuses are configurable.

Compliance Status History

This graph displays a 30-day overview of your organization's compliance history (Compliant, Partial, and Non-Compliant) by PCI requirement. If your organization is not in compliance with a PCI requirement, and does not become compliant within five days, the graph shows your organization as non-compliant for that requirement on the sixth day. This allows you time to remediate compliance issues before the issues negatively affect the organization's compliance status history. You can configure this time period from the default of five days to match your expected or promised compliance remediation timeline.
