Tokenization for PCI Compliance: Ensuring Token Databases are Secure


According to recent findings by the Aberdeen Group, best in class organizations have adopted tokenization to increase cardholder data security and meet PCI compliance requirements. Substituting tokens for regulated information such as credit card numbers and sensitive customer data improves the security of cardholder data and reduces the systems in scope for PCI compliance, saving organizations time and money. Behind this approach is a centralized database used to map tokens to the actual regulated data. This database represents a target for internal and external attacks, and must be secured to protect the extremely valuable data stored within it as well as pass the scrutiny of internal and external audits.
