File Integrity Monitoring is an important requirement of the PCI data security standard for maintaining confidential (e.g., cardholder) information, and is considered a crucial part of protecting business assets.

NonStop systems are now being used in far more dynamic situations and have more external connections than ever before. The ubiquity of payment cards for personal electronic transactions has changed the security equation in a fundamental way.

Any compromise in security is likely to have far reaching consequences, both in terms of financial loss, and for the wider damage to an organization’s reputation. Protecting personal cardholder information is paramount.

In this context, File Integrity Monitoring should be considered an important security necessity, not just for PCI compliance, but in order to preserve the integrity of all NonStop systems.

Toronto Based Firm Receives Compliance Requirement

CSP recently received a request by a large, Toronto based, financial institution regarding File Integrity Monitoring.  The client wished to improve their file monitoring process and had also received new compliance requirements regarding their file monitoring abilities. Specifically, they were having issues enabling file monitoring for a payment application.

It was crucial for them to know which changes had been made to critical files and to also have the ability to flag any unauthorized changes, compare file sets on different systems, report on changes to file attributes, and generate regular reports for managers and auditors. File monitoring was also required on an ongoing basis.

After evaluating their requirements, CSP recommended Verify EliteTM, a solution specifically designed for monitoring changes to files and generating compliance reports.
