Wi-Fi® Client Device Security and Compliance with PCI DSS

Published on October 2, 2018

For most of today's retailers, solid Wi-Fi client device security is essential for compliance with the latest version of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), version 1.2.

Such security can be achieved by following three best practices identified in the paper:

  • Ensure that a Wi-Fi client device can gain access to your wireless LANs (WLANs) only using WPA2-Enterprise with a strong EAP type.
  • Configure every trusted Wi-Fi client device to connect only to trusted APs.
  • Use ongoing monitoring to demonstrate the effectiveness of your WLAN security approach.
