Extensive Update: PCI DSS v4.0 is Here

11. April 2022

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) released version 4.0 of the PCI DSS on March 31, 2022. The full version of the new standard can be viewed on the PCI SSC websites.

This now marks the beginning of a two-year transition period for companies that need to be certified to PCI DSS. Starting March 31, 2024, PCI DSS certifications must then be done according to version 4.0. For some requirements marked as "future-dated requirements," the council is still giving affected companies time beyond the transition period to implement these security requirements. However, by March 31, 2025 at the latest, these must also be fully implemented in accordance with version 4.0.
