One of the recommendations for organizations to obtain PCI DSS compliance is to ensure segmentation of the cardholder’s data environment from the remainder of the network. This reduces the eventual scope of an assessment, cost of the assessment, and overall risk to an organization. Proper network segmentation will isolate systems that store, process, or transmit cardholder data, thereby restricting access to as few locations as possible.
