Requirement 8

PCI DSS Requirement 8 | Assign a Unique ID to Each Person with Computer Access | PCI Information Security Policy Template

PCI Requirement 8, “assign a unique ID to each person with computer access”, essentially ensure that each individual with access to critical system components within the cardholder data environment (CDE) is accountable for their actions, ultimately allowing one’s activities to be traced back to them.  This concepts of “awareness and accountability” helps ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of an organization’s overall information security landscape, especially as it relates to compliance with PCI.  For purposes of documentation, a high-quality, well-written PCI information security policy template is a great tool for helping comply with many provisions within Requirement 8, such as the following:

•    Documenting an organization’s stated password parameters and complexity rules.
•    Documenting an organization’s provisioning and authentication procedures.
•    Putting in place strict requirements regarding database access rights.
