PCI Feedback Begins Today!

(Originally Published July 7,2009)
The PCI Council is soliciting feedback on the current version of PCI DSS. Per the Council:

The open feedback period regarding the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) v 1.2 and Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) v. 1.2 begins today! As part of the Council's transparent, standards management lifecycle process, you, our Participating Organizations - merchants, processors, financial institutions, associations, vendors, and other key stakeholders - have the opportunity to provide detailed and actionable feedback in an effort to revise future editions of the Council's standards to improve payment data security. This is part of phase two of the lifecycle process and the feedback period will be open from July 1 to November 1, 2009.

Thanks to NACUBO and the Treasury Institute, you have a voice through Tom Davis and me. We are asked to comment on no more than 5 items that are the most important. Tom and I each have ideas on what these might be, but we both would like to hear what you think.

Any and all comments welcome. Comment here directly or send me an email ( with your suggestions. Please limit yourself to your top few ideas/comments. Tom and I will pull things together and provide our (your!?!) feedback to the Council.

One of the great advantages of being part of a Participating Organization is that we get to help shape the Standards. This is your chance to make your voice heard.
