“PCI SSC recently reorganized our Participating Organization program to achieve greater participation from our stakeholders. Feedback from our stakeholders is something we highly value. We now have three tiers that represent different levels of participation – Principal, Associate, and Individual. As a result, we also expanded our Board of Advisors,” said PCI SSC Executive Director Lance J. Johnson. “The increased number of board seats will ensure greater global involvement in PCI SSC standards, providing even more opportunities for discussion and collaboration. This ensures that our standards continue to be globally relevant, appropriate, and up to date to ensure the best levels of security for cardholder data. For the first time, our Board of Advisor members will also participate by voting on new standards and major revisions to standards prior to their release. In the changing payment environment, more so than ever, we depend on the guidance and input provided by our advisors to understand and address the new challenges and new technologies facing payment security.”
