The big news item of 2015 in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards world is PCI DSS 3.0. Version 2.0 is history and ended in 2014. Merchants have to now follow the requirements of v3.0 with the goal for continuous compliance rather than compliance at a particular point in time.
PCI DSS 3.0 is rigorous, detailed, with more sub-controls, more evidence to show, and more documentation to record and follow. All this means attention to specifics, preparation, and paperwork before a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) steps into an organization for an audit.
How does Omega know all this?
