It requires you to keep logs of changes, file integrity, etc, depending on which PCI group you fall under. We have to have file integrity monitoring logs stored in multiple places to prevent admin from being able to remove all traces of changes. Sure, there's ways around it, but there'd likely be enough warning signs that something is happening to take action, assuming there are any auditing controls in place..

Why do you have cardholder information (such as the PAN) in e-mail anyways? No way around that? We don't store any cardholder data (well nothing that's required to be encrypted) in e-mails or any other system ourside of our PCI network. The data itself is encrypted at rest in SQL, and encrypted during transmission to vendors (CC service and ACH stuff).

If you don't trust your admins fire them and hire new admins. There's little
you can do to prevent a malicious admin from bypassing security controls. I
would be surprised if PCI requires that you protect your servers and the
data on those servers from your admins.

You can look at the Outlook crypto settings (User
Configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Outlook
2010\Security\Cryptography in group policy), and you can also look at DRM,
such as Microsoft's Rights Management Services. These will encrypt the email
messages at the client and they should remain encrypted on the servers, but
a malicious admin can get around these countermeasures in a variety of ways,
e.g. they can change the RMS policies to grant themselves the right to read
messages regardless of who wrote them or they could install a rootkit and
keystroke logger that collects the executives logon credentials and later
log onto the executive's computer to examine whatever files they want.

Thanks Kurt.
I guess that won't do. As far as I know, and based on the tests that we've
been performing, it only provides for a way so in case the disks are
robbed/stolen they won't be readable unless you have a key (stored in a say
removable USB drive).
It won't prevent the system admin from reading the contents of the mails or
even making copies of the .edb and .stm files for later misues.

We're still searching and testing so I'm open to suggestions.

Thank you.

Your using Windows Server 2008, so why not use BitLocker to encrypt the
entire drive?

Regards,

Kurt

Subject: HOW TO encrypt and store mail

Hello,

We are looking for a solution to store and encrypt mails.

We need to comply with PCI (Payment Card Industry) standards.
We have Windows 2008 and Exchange 2007 SP2.

So far, we haven't found a way to encrypt and store mail in Exchange.
We'll be encrypting communications with TLS.

Plus, we need to use OE (Outlook Express) so we can use IMAP for incoming
mail and SMTP for outgoing e-mail.

Any ideas/suggestions are more than welcome.

Thank you.
