PCI SSC to release PCI DSS version 1.2 in October 2008

pcilogoThe PCI Security Standards Council released a press release: PCI SECURITY STANDARDS COUNCIL TO RELEASE VERSION 1.2 OF THE PCI DATA SECURITY STANDARD IN OCTOBER 2008

Council to evolve PCI DSS with enhanced clarity on technical requirements, improved
flexibility and greater management of evolving risks and threats

Using feedback provided by this community, including more than 2,000 questions submitted to the Council since its formation in 2006, version 1.2 of PCI DSS:
• Incorporates existing and new best practices
• Provides further scoping and reporting clarification
• Eliminates overlapping sub-requirements and consolidates documentation
• Enhances the frequently asked questions and glossary to facilitate understanding of the
security process.

It will be interesting to see what the “new best practices” are and what new requirements will be based on “evolving risks and threats”

Stay tuned…
