This year, usd PCI experts again participated in the virtual 2021 Global Community Meeting hosted by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). The PCI Community Meetings are held annually to strengthen collaboration in the payment security community and to provide a platform for international exchange on current developments, progress, threats and regional specifics of the payment card industry.
Torsten Schlotmann, Head of PCI Security Services: “My colleagues and I were able to take away some helpful impulses from the presentations and tech demos at this year’s PCI Community Meeting. PCI DSS 4.0 is just around the corner. The direct dialog with the PCI Council and the professional exchange with other experts in the payment card industry is of great value to us. In addition, there is a whole range of other topics that keep the world of payment security in motion, such as the security of mobile payment applications and the further development of corresponding PCI standards. The upcoming final replacement of the PA-DSS by the Software Security Framework (SSF) is of particular interest to our clients and ourselves. At the Community Meeting, we received practical information on the most important technical and process-related differences directly from the source, so that we will be able to support our clients even better in adapting to the SSF.”
