It serves as a direct channel for communication between the senior leadership of payment security assessors and PCI SSC senior leadership.
“The Council depends on the input of a wide range of stakeholders to provide PCI SSC with valuable insights,” said PCI SSC Executive Director Lance J. Johnson. With the release of version 4.0 of our PCI Data Security Standard this year, it is even more important to have active representation from every corner of the globe from an assessor perspective.
