    PCI Data Security Standard – 4.0 is NOW LIVE

    The time has finally come! After 6,000+ items of feedback received by over 200+ companies, the PCI Security Standards Council has published its long-awaited update to the Data Security Standard. Version 4.0 replaces version 3.2.1 to address emerging threats and technologies that impact a rapidly evolving payments landscape. As the Council was considering what changes were needed, four main goals were identified and became the driving force behind the numerous changes made in the Standard:

    • Continue to meet the security needs of the payments industry
    • Promote security as a continuous process
    • Increase flexibility for organizations using different methods to achieve security objectives
    • Enhance validation methods and procedures

    Additionally, the Council has outlined the following timeline that details how the transition from v3.2.1 to v4.0 will occur over the upcoming years:

     

    The preparation and implementation to v4.0 for stakeholders will extend through 2023, with the retirement and therefore transition to the new standard occurring at the end of Q1 2024.
