WAKEFIELD, Mass. — The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) here, which manages the PCI standard for payment card security, announced that three new special interest groups (SIGs) have been established to address cloud, ecommerce security and risk assessment in relation to card security.
Special interest groups are a forum for industry participation in Council initiatives to increase payment card security. The groups focus on providing recommendations to the Council that often results in guidance for interpreting and implementing the PCI Standards.
To date participants have made contributions to Council resources on topics such as wireless security, EMV chip, point-to-point encryption and virtualized environments . The Council invites any members of the PCI SSC community interested in participating in one of these projects to indicate their interest by emailing >>>>[email protected]before November 30th. >>>>
Following this, Council SIG leads will convene each group to formalize the group charter and precise scope of work project. This will be shared by the end of the year, with SIGs anticipated to start work in the beginning of 2012. >>>>
