PCI DSS 3.0 is out

The Payement Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council has released the version 3.0 of the Data Security Standards (DSS). These can be found in the Documents section.

Version 3.0 brings lots of changes: some controls have been rephrased for clarity, several controls related to policies and operational procedures have been added and some accent is put on the treatment of vulnerabilities. A summary of the changes can be found here.
