The  new version of  PCI DSS and the main aim is to represent ways to protect the data is the answer for the payment card industry.

PCI DSS is the PCI data security standard and it was initially established in the year 2004. Starting from version 1 (v1), there are so many versions upto version 4 (v4) and these are maintained by the PCI security standards council. If you are in need to protect your cardholder data with both operational and technical requirements, then you can go for the PCI DSS standard 4.0 version.


For all the payment industry security needs, the PCI DSS 4.0 standards are entitled to promote security in a continuous process. This will add flexibility to the security patterns in different methodologies and hence the method of validation will be improved greatly.

§  Updated the sensitive authentication data (SAD) secure handling

§  Provided higher insight for the vulnerability landscape

 What you need to remember ?

There will be an official release date for the PCI DSS v4.0 with the required validation documents. Then, there will be some training and supporting documents for that release. After this process, the PCI DSS v3.2.1will be retired and once the older ones are expired, the new requirements will come into effective.
