PCI Security Council Wants Feedback on PCI DSS

Kara Reeder

The PCI Security Standards Council wants comments about how the current version of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is working.


According to Computerworld, retailers, financial institutions and others in the payment industry can submit feedback between July 1 and Nov. 1 about how to improve the PCI DSS 1.2 standard. The group is also planning on holding two "community meetings" -- one in the U.S. and one in Europe -- where interested parties can weigh in.


Comments will be taken into consideration for the next version of the standard, which is due out in the fall of 2010.


IT Business Edge blogger Ralph DeFrangesco has praised states like Nevada and companies like MasterCard for stepping up and taking PCI DSS farther. According to DeFrangesco,

"what will eventually happen is that state and federal laws will replace the loosely crafted and applied standard."
