DATA PROTECTIONAugust 12, 2010
The PCI Security Standards Council has released a summary of anticipated changes to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA DSS), Bank Info Security reports. The 12 proposed changes are designed to clarify certain aspects of the standards and provide additional guidance, among other aims. There are no new requirements in version 2.0. "The relatively minor revisions are a testament to the maturity of the standards and their ability to protect sensitive data," said council General Manager Bob Russo. A more detailed summary of both will be released in September.
