“Enhanced” PCI compliance efforts from Visa

Thanks to Digital Transactions for this article reporting about Visa’s plans for enhanced Merchant compliance in the new year.    They identify the source of the info as an Oct. 21 Visa Bulletin.

“The document outlines a detailed plan to begin noncompliance assessments of Level 1 and Level 2 merchants and of service providers without remediation plans. “
“Visa wants merchants and payment services companies to validate their PCI compliance by providing the name of the qualified security assessor performing the validation inquiry and the planned date of validation.”
“Visa is less patient with organizations that have never shown evidence of PCIcompliance, requiring them to notify their merchants and agents immediately of that fact. Penalties under this program can begin as soon as 31 days have passed.”

It appears Visa is making efforts to further drive compliance.
