Permanent link:[Article]-PCI DSS 2.0 Fun Facts
By Dr. Anton Chuvakin @ Security Warrior Consulting
Do not think of PCI DSS 2.0, that came out this October, as “PCI DSS 1.3!”
Instead, think about is as PCI DSS 1.2.2. Despite the great fanfare, the changes in PCI DSS are small and tactical. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of very useful clarifications, reminders and explanations have been added to the standards – both PCI DSS and PA-DSS. However, a lot of media attention has made it sound as if the PCI Council has “changed everything … again,” and that is simply not the case. Some of the requirements that are frequently seen by merchants as too specific have been made more generic, while some that have received criticism for being too have vaporous, have been tightened down.
Let’s go through a few of the interesting changes in PCI DSS and try to predict what the impact would be in the coming year of 2011 as PCI DSS 2.0 is put into practice.
