PCI Security Standards Council to Help Clear Cloudiness

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) is expected to release a new version of the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) in October of this year.

In this new version, the PCI DSS will address virtualization and cloud computing. This new guidance will be a huge win for virtualization adoption, as well as the organizations that are subject to PCI and under pressure to better manage costs. The Council, founded by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa, developed the PCI DSS to specify how to best protect payment card information. In other words, it specifies how to best protect you and me from anyone who attempts to break into systems to steal our valuable financial information.

Both Beyond Security's WSSA, AVDS and Meraki's Wireless Cloud Platform fully support the current PCI DSS standard and will be closely following this new directive.
