PCI Payment Application Data Security Standard (PCI PA-DSS)

If you are a payment software developer of integrator of commercialized payment applications which will be used in an environment that is subjected to PCI DSS compliance, you should consider assessing your payment application against the PCI Payment Application Data Security Standard (PCI PA-DSS). This standard was created to help software vendors develop secure payment applications to be sold, distributed or licensed to third parties.

Merchants are motivated to use PA-DSS validated payment applications in their payment environment to help with their PCI DSS compliance obligation and reduce cybersecurity risk.


PCI Software Security Standard is coming...

PCI recently published two new requirements documents for PCI Software Security, which will eventually replace PA-DSS. The audit requirements allow for companies to pre-validate their security development processes, to reduce the burden of on-going compliance, and the testing requirements allow for the direct assessment of the security posture of a particular software component or product.

Take a sneak peek into how these standards will be applied, what do they mean to your business, and how can you best prepare for the eventual replacement of PCI PA-DSS in our new ebook - 'Securing Digital Payments'.
