PCI DSS and PA-DSS Now in Nine Languages

WAKEFIELD, Mass., 20 February, 2014 —Today, the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), an open global forum for the development of payment card security standards, announced that the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) 3.0 are now available in nine languages. Organizations worldwide can now benefit from increased understanding of PCI Standards in their native language.

PCI DSS and PA-DSS 3.0 were published in November 2013, with updates made based on feedback from the Council’s global constituents and response to market needs. More than 50% of this feedback came from outside of the U.S., emphasizing the Council’s active international membership base. Version 3.0 helps organizations worldwide make payment security part of their business-as-usual activities by introducing more flexibility, and an increased focus on education, awareness and security as a shared responsibility.
The PCI SSC website supports translated pages and PCI materials including the new PCI DSS v3.0 and PA-DSS v3.0 in the following languages: Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
