PCI-DSS compliance controls

PCI-DSS compliance controls provide enhancements that help you with payment card industry (PCI) compliance for your workspace.

PCI-DSS compliance controls require enabling the compliance security profile, which adds monitoring agents, enforces instance types for inter-node encryption, provides a hardened compute image, and other features. For technical details, see Enable the compliance security profile. It is your responsibility to confirm that each workspace has the compliance security profile enabled if it’s needed.

Which compute resources get enhanced security

The compliance security profile enhancements apply to compute resources in the classic compute plane, such as clusters and non-serverless SQL warehouses. This applies in all regions.

Serverless SQL warehouse support for the compliance security profile varies by region. See Serverless SQL warehouses support the compliance security profile in some regions.

Enable PCI-DSS compliance controls

To configure your account or workspace to support processing of data regulated by PCI-DSS, enable the compliance security profile. One of those steps includes contacting your Databricks account team, at which point also request the PCI-DSS compliance controls. When ordering, you have the option to enable this functionality across all workspaces on an account, or only on individual workspaces.

If you’ve already enabled the security profile, contact your Databricks account team to request the PCI-DSS compliance controls.

You are solely responsible for ensuring your own compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
