The PCI Council’s Bold Move

The long wait is over and PCI DSS v4 has finally been released!

In a very bold move, the Council has taken a page out of the Microsoft playbook.  Instead of being called “PCI DSS v4” the Council has chosen the name “PCI DSS Miserable Edition” or PCI DSS ME.

Council Communications Director, April Fool, said that, “Everyone was getting tired of the numeric increase, so with the consent of the card brands we decided to change things up a bit with this release.  Based on the feedback we have gotten from the Participating Organizations, QSAs and other stakeholders, this new designation seemed to be appropriate.”

I am sure we all remember how well Windows ME worked out and that set the bar pretty low.  PCI DSS ME can only be a step up.

Have a great day and do not get taken in by any calls from Mr. Bear or Mrs. Cougar.
