PCI appoints new board of advisors

By on

A roster of new organisations will make up the second Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) board of advisors, including Bank of America, Wal-Mart and PayPal.

The advisors will replace the inaugural board, which served a two-year term beginning in 2007. The purpose of the board is to provide strategic and technical guidance to the PCI SSC, which manages the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

The new board's first task will be reviewing the results of an emerging technology study that was commissioned by the council, according to a PCI news release.

More than 140 PCI SSC participating organisations were nominated to sit on the board. Of those nominated, 14 organisations were elected by peers on the PCI SSC. Another seven organisations were chosen by the PCI SSC executive council to fill any gaps in sector or geographic market representation.

"Our participating organisations came out in force in the recent council nominations and election process,” Bob Russo, the council's general manager said. 

The inaugural board helped evolve the PCI DSS from version 1.1 to 1.2, aided in the publication of a prioritised approach to PCI DSS and also in the formation of special interest groups for wireless, scoping, virtualisation and pre-authorisation.
