PCI's Not-So-Open Global Forum

This post was written by Shift's Director of Information Security, Stephen Ames, CISA, CISSP.

I just wrapped up onsite PA-DSS validations with my PA-QSA this month and a question came up about PA-DSS Requirement 4.2.7, which aligns with DSS Requirement 10.2, which is all about user access. Just so we’re all on the same page, you need to know that none of Shift4’s PA-DSS applications have a user database; hence, all of PA-DSS Requirements 3 and 4 are not in scope for us. That’s the way it has been since Visa’s PABP days and beginning with Version 1 of the PA-DSS.
