    I have to agree, this is getting ridiculous. My real concern is the continuous use of the FAQ on the SSC’s website to change PCI requirements. Just as recently last month they had a posting that said call centers have an exception to the storage of prohibited data if its not stored in a manner that is searchable. Not only have they taken that down, but have called out mp3s and wav files as being prohibited.

    They should wait till the new revisions of the DSS to make changes that impacting, not the FAQ.

    Now this is getting ridicules, I will be impressed when the PCI SCC finally adds rules that state the storage of clear text magnetic stripe data, CVV and other sensitive cardholder information is no longer allowed to be stored on card itself, since this seems to be the source of all the problems.

If your organization has a PCI opportunity, is in need of assistance with a PCI issue or if you would like the PCI Guru to speak at your meeting, you can contact the PCI Guru at pciguru AT gmail DOT com.

I do allow vendors to post potential solutions in response to issues that I bring up in posts. However, the PCI Guru does not endorse any specific products, so "Caveat Emptor" - let the buyer beware. Also, if I feel that the response is too "sales-ee", I reserve the right to edit or not even authorize the response.
