Nexusguard was chosen after incidents like the Adobe attack from earlier this month. The company’s experience and expertise will be a strong addition to the council in regards to regulating cardholder security standards and data safety. In addition to being added to the current 664 participating organizations, Nexusguard will also be privy to new standards and regulations before they are released, thus being able to insure that they are on the forefront of internet security standards.
PCI-DSS 3.0 will be published in November, and will become active starting January 2014. We will be publishing the new standards that PCI-DSS 3.0 will bring, once it is released
