PCICo is officially the Payment Card PCI Security Standards Council!!

The standards body that was announced nearly 5 months ago is official. The PCI Security Standards Council is up and running, and with it a slew of changes. A run down of the changes include:
PCI DSS Version 1.1
PCI DSS Changes Document
– New Qualification requirements for Assessors and Scanners
– New Web Application Requirements
– Clarification on encryption
– A slew of organizational changes

I am only through the first few documents, but will post an analysis of each area here in a few days. I apologize about the delay, but I will be riding in the MS Society 150 Challenge (fundraiser) over the next three days and will not have access to the internet. Stay posted as the payment card industry just got a huge boost in credibility and the integrity of the standard (see post on Vendor Certification).

Best regards,

James DeLuccia IV

  1. Hi James,
    Where might I find information on the new qualification requirements for Assessors and Scanners?
    Thanks,
    Sweta.

  2. James , I would like to mention that many are now visiting my website as a result of the title ‘PCiCo’, which is really good for my hits counter, but my site is of NO USE to anyone seeking info re: PCICO – PAYMENTS.
    I hope your visitors TAKE NOTE, PCICO.CO.UK IS AN IT SECURITY SITE, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CREDIT CARD PROCESSING, THANKS JAMES

  3. Sweta,

    The best new place to check up on the qualification requirements is on the PCI Council site – http://www.pcisecuritystandards.org or more specifically under the Certification link (https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/certification/index.htm)

    I would also recommend setting up a Live Bookmark for the site to keep abreast of any changes or updates to the requirements and site.

    Regards,

    James

  4. Cliff,

    I hope that you are getting some business from all that traffic. If not, perhaps a link to the http://www.pcisecuritystandards.org site may be a good idea, or a self serving marketing link to one of the assessors may help offset some of that bandwidth cost.

    Regards,

    James
