Global Website with New Resources launched by PCI Security Standards Council


The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), a global, open
industry standards body providing management of the Payment Card
Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), PIN Transaction Security
(PTS) Security Requirements and the Payment Application Data Security
Standard (PA-DSS), announced the launch of a new PCI SSC micro site,
providing resources to secure payment card data in eight languages.

When visitors enter the new Council website in addition to continuing to the existing English language site, they
will now be given the option to view information in one of eight
languages: French, French (Canadian), German, Italian, Japanese,
Portuguese, Spanish, and Traditional Chinese. Once on the selected site,
visitors can review standards materials and supporting documentation on
the PCI DSS and PA-DSS and information on the Council, all in their
native language.

“Payment security is a global issue and organizations around the world
are taking action to secure cardholder data. The PCI Security Standards
Council is committed to providing for the needs of both multinational
and local companies with native language resources,” said Bob Russo,
general manager of the Council. “By helping companies access PCI
Standards in their own language, the SSC continues our mission of
increasing awareness of PCI Standards as key tools to secure cardholder
data globally.”

In the last year, the Council welcomed a significant increase in
international participation, including:

  • 26 percentage increase in Participating Organizations based outside of
    the United States
  • 8 percent increase in attendance in the European Community Meeting,
    the Council’s annual gathering of stakeholders
  • New PCI SSC Standards Training sessions conducted in international
    locations, including Australia, Czech Republic, United Kingdom and
  • Media interviews and speaking engagements in 14 countries

“With the introduction of this micro site, we are redoubling the
Council’s efforts to educate globally, and making critical, native
language resources and materials available to further help organizations
protect and safeguard their sensitive payment information,” said Russo.
“This is an important move to benefit our global stakeholders and we
will continue to build out our international capabilities and
multilingual educational materials over the year ahead.”
