Requirement #8 of PCI DSS Compliance

Requirement # 8 states that organizations must “Identify and authenticate access to system components.” This means that a unique identification (ID) should be assigned to each user before allowing that user to access critical data and that certain policies and controls should be implemented in order to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access.
