New Version 3.0 of the PIN Transaction Security (PTS) Point of Interaction (POI) standard

A new measure to strengthen credit card data protection was released by the PCI Security Standards Council today.

Version 3.0 of the PIN Transaction Security (PTS) Point of Interaction (POI) standard is designed to streamline and simplify testing and implementation by providing a single set of modular evaluation requirements for all Personal Identification Number (PIN) acceptance Point of Interaction terminals. This standard is meant to enhance and prevent payment card fraud on devices that accept payment transactions and will cover everything from retail point of sale card readers to unattended payment terminals at gas stations and parking lots.
