PCI DSS v4.0

Get Prepared For A Compliance Shake Up

The PCI DSS standard is largely responsible for dictating the way organizations all over the world approach  cybersecurity and the protection of credit card data. As v4.0 of the standard approaches, organizations should aim to identify and plan updates for the aspects of their security and compliance programs that are most likely to be affected.

A lot of information about PCI DSS v4.0 is already available, and it’s shaping up to be the most significant update of the last decade. This white paper will cover everything organizations need to know about PCI DSS v4.0, including what is likely to change, when it will come into effect, and how they can prepare in advance.

Key Learning Points:

PCI DSS v4.0 is set for release in late 2020 or early 2021. The current version 3.2.1 will remain valid for approximately 12 – 18 months following the release of v4.0 to give organizations a fair opportunity to make any necessary updates to their security and compliance programs.

•  At least seven significant changes to the PCI DSS standard are coming in v4.0. These include updates to the way Cardholder Data Environments (CDEs) are scoped, broader encryption requirements, and a demand for more stringent risk assessments and security awareness training.

•  A huge change in v4.0 is the move to “Outcome Orientation”, which will see all 12 requirements reworded to focus on security outcomes instead of specific requirements. In addition to the traditional Defined Implementation approach, organizations will have the option to demonstrate how their security protocols meet the intent of each requirement instead of being forced down a specific security route.
