PCI Security Standards Council: Activity UpdateCTO Troy Leach Describes Three Key Initiatives
As payment card fraud schemes continue to evolve, the PCI Security Standards Council has to recalibrate its standards and programs, says Troy Leach, the council's CTO, who describes three key updates.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent New York City Fraud Summit, Leach discusses:
- New PCI standards for software security and vendor lifecycle management;
- The update and expansion of the Qualified Integrator and Reseller training program;
- Moving the needle on validation and self-assessment for smaller enterprises with simplification.
As CTO of the PCI Security Standards Council, Leach partners with council representatives, participating organizations and industry leaders to develop comprehensive standards and strategies to secure payment card data and the supporting infrastructure. He is also congressional subject matter expert on payment security and the current chairman of the council's standards committee.
