PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SS) Overview – pcisecuritystandards.org 

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) (the council) is – according to https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/ – an open global forum, launched in 2006, and is responsible for the development, management, education, and awareness of the actual Payment Card Industry Standards (PCI), including the Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), and PIN Transaction Security (PTS) requirements. As for the major payment brands (AMEX, VISA, MasterCard, Discover & JCB), they are the council’s founding payment brands, and are actively involved in many aspects of the PCI security compliance initiatives themselves.

From an organizational perspective, the council is led by a policy-setting Executive Committee, which includes representatives from the major payment brands, along with other strategic members.  Moreover, a Board of Advisors and participating organizations also provide valuable input to the council as it relates to the PCI standards.  Lastly, there are also Working Groups, Taskforces, and Special Interest Groups that also actively participate within the PCI community as a whole.  It’s a dynamic organization, one that actively seeks to meet the needs of a broad and varied range of entities within the payments industry.
