PCI DSS v3.2 published

On April 28, 2016 the PCI Council has published the new version 3.2 of the PCI DSS Standard.

With publication of the Payment Card Security Data Security Standard version 3.2 the PCI Security Standards Council retires the three-year life cycle of one of its main publications. In the future smaller, but more frequent changes are likely.
Version 3.2 is effective immediately and can be used for validation activities upon its publication. The previous version 3.1 of the PCI DSS is valid until October 31, 2016. All validations against this version of the standard must be completed by this time. Beginning with November 1, 2016 all validations must be performed against PCI DSS version 3.2.
