Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Security Hub now supports automated security checks aligned to the international Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 3.2.1 requirements.

Available in most global regions, AWS Security Hub provides users with a comprehensive view of their high-priority security alerts and compliance status across AWS accounts. 

The addition of PCI DSS-compliant payment card security checks opens up more capabilities for local end users operating transacting organisations that rely on card payments to do business.

All Australian businesses that accept card payments need to comply with the PCI DSS regardless of their business size, according to the Australian Government. In New Zealand, meanwhile, businesses of certain types are required to comply with specific PCI DSS standards.

AWS Security Hub’s PCI DSS standard includes 32 automated rules designed to help users with their ongoing PCI DSS security activities. It does this by conducting continuous checks against 32 PCI DSS requirements across 14 AWS services.
