PCI Council Calls It Quits

Citing that the payment channels are now secure, the PCI Security Standards Council announced this morning in a press release that they were closing down effective June 30, 2015.


A large sigh of relief was heard worldwide upon the announcement.

Have a happy April 1st otherwise known as April Fools’ Day.

    Even better if PCI Council declared that they are disbanding because they cannot keep ahead of the bad guys

    Wishful thinking. But in all seriousness, the PCICo should take off its blinders and embrace innovators in the industry instead of worrying about remaining relevant!

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.
