On March 10, 2014, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) released new PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQs). These new SAQs are designed to align with the PCI Data Security Standards, version 3.0 (PCI DSS 3.0), released last November. The PCI DSS is the widely accepted set of policies and procedures used to optimize security of credit, debit and cash card transactions and protect cardholders from misuse of their personal information.
This release of new SAQs follows PCI SSC practice. Previous versions of the PCI DSS also were accompanied by a set of SAQs to assist companies in satisfying the PCI DSS requirements under the guidance of the payment brands (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB). The new SAQs reflect some important changes specific to version 3.0 compliance.
