This book is your go-to reference on how to achieve PCI compliance. With more than 400 PCI requirements, the updated PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) v4.0 does not detail the specific documentation that a PCI auditor-known as a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA)-needs to know. This book is the first reference to detail the specific documentation needed for every PCI requirement. The authors provide real-world examples of complying with the 12 main PCI requirements and clarify many of the gray areas within the PCI DSS.
Any merchant or service provider that stores, processes, or transmits credit card data must comply with the PCI Data Security Standard. PCI DSS 1.0 was first published in 2004, yet many of those tasked with PCI compliance still encounter difficulties when trying to make sense of it. PCI DSS version 4 was published in March 2022, and at 360 pages, it has numerous additional requirements, leaving many people struggling to know what they need to do to comply.
PCI DSS v4.0 has a transition period in which PCI DSS version 3.2.1 will remain active for two years from the v4.0 publication date. Although the transition period ends on March 31, 2024, and may seem far away, those tasked with PCI compliance will need every bit of the time to acquaint themselves with the many news updates, templates, forms, and more, that PCI v4.0 brings to their world.
