PCI DSS 4.0 is Open for Discussion

The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global standard of technical and operational requirements for merchants and service providers who collect, process, or store cardholder data. The next evolution of the PCI DSS,  version 4.0, is emerging. 

The new version adds significant complexity to the PCI DSS compliance process, according to experts. Not necessarily good news for the merchants mentioned above and service providers.

PCI DSS 4.0 Compliance Program 

Any organization that uses and handles consumer credit or debit payment information must comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. This standard covers technical and operational practices for handling cardholder data. To prepare yourself and your organization, it’s essential to look ahead to this new version of PCI DSS. 

PCI DSS 3.2.1 to PCI DSS 4.0 


As a general rule, if you don’t need to process or store sensitive cardholder data, don’t. If you have already eliminated SAD and PAN from your information management system, you should have a relatively smooth transition from 3.2.1 to 4.0.
