In March 2022, the Payment Card Industry Security
Standards Council unveiled the latest iteration of PCI DSS, marking a significant transition from v3.2 to v4.0. This update provides a more defined vision of the future
payment security landscape
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a pivotal framework for fortifying data security, especially concerning payment cards. It comprises a set of well-recognized policies and procedures geared toward enhancing the security of credit, debit, and cash card transactions while safeguarding cardholders’ personal information.
Under the governance of the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), which is a consortium comprising major credit card companies, PCI DSS has a central goal of reducing the risk of cybersecurity breaches concerning sensitive data and mitigating the potential for fraud within organizations that handle payment card information. This collection of standards holds vital importance for various entities, including service providers and merchants, involved in card data processing, storage, or transmission.
A PCI QSA (Qualified Security Assessor) company is authorized to perform PCI DSS assessments tailored to ensure merchants comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). They help merchants (PCI DSS companies) identify gaps or vulnerabilities in their cybersecurity measures.
Furthermore, QSAs play a pivotal role in safeguarding cardholder data. They
conduct thorough on-site and remote assessments of security controls, providing merchants with valuable insights and recommendations to enhance their security posture. They also assist in developing and implementing essential security policies and procedures to ensure ongoing data protection
An Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) is an organization equipped with security services and tools to perform external vulnerability scanning services, validating compliance with the external scanning requirements of PCI DSS (payment card industry data security standard) requirement. ASVs are authorized by the PCI Security Standards Council to offer data security assessment services, evaluating how well an organization meets the detailed scanning requirements of PCI DSS.
