One Last Time On Disaster Recovery

I have written three posts on this topic, yet it still comes up.

Here are the Cliff Notes from those posts.

Hot sites are always in scope for PCI compliance because they can support failover on demand.

Cold sites are never in scope for PCI compliance because there is nothing there that would be in scope.

Warm sites are only in scope if they have cardholder data (CHD) processed, stored or transmitted from that site.

There are nuances with all of this, so if you want more information, read the three posts.




Announcements

If you are posting a comment, be patient, as the comments will not be published until they are approved.

If your organization has a PCI opportunity, is in need of assistance with a PCI issue or if you would like the PCI Guru to speak at your meeting, you can contact the PCI Guru at pciguru AT gmail DOT com.

I do allow vendors to post potential solutions in response to issues that I bring up in posts. However, the PCI Guru does not endorse any specific products, so "Caveat Emptor" - let the buyer beware. Also, if I feel that the response is too "sales-ee", I reserve the right to edit or not even authorize the response.
