The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), an open, global forum for the development of payment card security standards, announced the election results for 2015 Special Interest Group (SIG) projects.
SIGS are PCI community-led initiatives that address specific areas or security challenges in relation to the PCI Standards.
PCI Participating Organizations, including merchants, financial institutions, service providers and associations, voted on the seven proposals submitted by their peers and presented for consideration at the 2014 PCI Community Meetings.
These are the topics selected for exploration in 2015:
- Daily Log Monitoring: Guidance on Effective Daily Log Monitoring
- Shared Responsibilities: Guidance on Determining Shared Responsibilities for Entities and Third Party Service Providers
More information on each SIG is available on the PCI SSC Website:
Over the next few weeks Council SIG leads will convene each group to formalize the group charter and precise scope of work, before kicking off the projects in January 2015.
The Council invites PCI Participating Organizations and assessors interested in getting involved in one of these SIG projects to fill out the web form on the PCI SSC Website between Dec. 1-22, 2014.
