Scanning for wireless rogue threats….requirements clarified
November 12, 2012
PCI DSS have updated the requirements as of June 30th of 2012. Now, there are 3 types of required scanning.
- Internal Vulnerability
- External IP
- Wireless Rogue threat
Here’s are some tips on the wireless scanning you’d want to pay attention to:
- Make sure your detection in place is capturing the Mac address of the rogue device as many think their firewall solution covers it
- Make sure the rogue device Mac addresses are compared to a known list of acceptable addresses
- Make sure you have an Incident Response Plan in the event an unauthorized wireless device is detected
