From February 1st 2018 there are some pretty big requirement changes coming to the PCI-DSS regulation. Up until now all of the changes listed below have been ‘best practices’, however from next month there will be new requirements, so you need to make sure you’re still compliant.

The following changes to PCI-DSS v3.2 go live February 1st:

  • Requirement 3.5.1 — Documented cryptographic architecture
  • Requirement 10.8 —Detection and reporting of critical security controls failure
  • Requirement 10.8.1 —Respond and document failures of any critical security controls
  • Requirement — Six-month penetration testing of segmentation controls
  • Requirement 12.4.1 — Assign responsibility for PCI DSS compliance and create a PCI DSS charter
  • Requirement 12.11.a —Six-month management review of policy and process compliance
  • Requirement 12.11.1 —Documentation of the six-month management review
