Excited about PCI DSS 4.0? What to Expect & How to Prepare, Part 1 – Chris Pin – SCW #91

We’re getting closer to the Q1 2022 release of PCI DSS 4.0, which is expected to differ from the current PCI DSS 3.2.1 version in a few key ways. This includes giving organizations more options in how they become compliant, along with customized implementation. In this podcast, Chris Pin, VP of Privacy and Compliance at PKWARE, will discuss what customized implementation means for organizations, additional changes to 4.0, and why they’re important.

And, while PCI 3.2.1 won’t be retired until 2024, it’s a good idea for companies to get started now with their 4.0 compliance strategy. After all, the road to compliance could be a long one, and 2025 will be here before we know it!
