Help coming for small businesses says SSC

The PCI SSC has announced the formation of a global task force charged with doing what it can to assist small merchants reduce their risk of attack by hackers and/or comply with the PCI DSS.    Areas of focus are to include:

  • Simplified Guidance.
  • Best practices.
  • Input to the council on current trends on issues and concerns of the small merchants.  Presumably leading to any necessary changes to the standard.

The PCI SSC followed up the announcement of the task force at the National Restaurant Association show in Chicago with a May 19 2015 press release.

If you are a small merchant interested in contributing input to the task force, contact the Council at

And if you are a fan of The Register’s style of humour, their headline for a story on the topic is entertaining.
