I think your QSA has no clue what he's talking about; sorry.

The 12 PCI DSS requirements are not meant to be applied that way and several of them refer specifically to cardholder 
data.  In addition to that, I just don't think the detailed requirements are very good.  You should just make sure the 
PCI requirements are addressed as part of a more comprehensive security program.

When we were conducting a gap analysis for PCI-DSS, our QSA recommended that we adopt the 12 PCI standards as our 
overriding security policy.  Has anyone had similar advice or considered doing this?

Hello all,

At the University of Tennessee, our security program is based on the NIST 800 Series special publications rather than 
ISO 27001.  While we don't claim to implement 100% of it (it wouldn't be appropriate,) we're making heavy use of 
FIPS199, 800-37, 800-53, 800-66, etc.

I've had staff calling and emailing around asking this, but I figured I'd ask this list also: what is your school's 
security program based on?

Thanks,
ajw
