PCI Standards to be updated on new three-year cycle

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) will update the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) on a new three year cycle.

PCI DSS has been on a two year update cycle. The council made the changes to give merchants more time to implement the standards between iterations. In addition, the PIN Transaction Security (PTS) requirements and the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), will also be moved to a three year development cycle.

A little more time to comply between changes is always welcome.
