PCI Security Standards Council readying new payment-card security standard

The Payment Card Industry data security standards, which influence design of networks where sensitive payment-card account data is stored, are expected to be further revised by the PCI Security Standards Council over the next few months.

Bob Russo, general manager of the PCI Security Standards Council, says that by early summer the organization expects to be able to issue a summary for a new PCI standard, which would go into effect in about October.
