The PCI SSC's Special Interest Groups (SIGs) leverage the valuable business and technical experiences of PCI SSC Participating Organizations to collaborate with the PCI SSC on any supporting guidance or special projects relating to the PCI Security Standards.
A SIG may be formed to address a specific industry or technological challenge. A SIG's objective is to recommend changes, clarifications, or improvements to the PCI Standards and the programs that support them. In some cases, a SIG's deliverable will be a white paper or guidance document that does not change the standards or supporting frameworks, but provides clarification on specific requirements or areas of interest.
This form is designed to capture all necessary basic information from Participating Organizations proposing to create a SIG. The information will assist the PCI Security Standards Council in creating a shortlist of proposals on which Participating Organizations will vote. Council staff may contact the proposing organization for further discussion or clarification of this submission. Be as specific as possible when completing the form. Completion of this document or entry into this process does not guarantee formation of a Special Interest Group. For more information on how SIGs work, please visit https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/organization_info/special_interest_groups.php
All submissions are reviewed by the PCI SSC for consideration. All submissions approved by the PCI SSC are then presented to the Participating Organizations for final selection as an election process. Submissions are not guaranteed approval by the PCI SSC, inclusion in the Participating Organization selection process, or final selection by Participating Organizations.
