Get Ready for PCI 3.0

RIght on schedule (see their lifecycle doc at, the folks at PCI DSS have released a "what to expect" document for PCI 3.0.  I'm a bit late commenting on this - somehow I missed this when it was posted in August.  Specifically called out in the doc are:

  • Weak passwords, authentication
  • Third-party security challenge
  • Slow self-detection, malware
  • Inconsistency in assessments

It'll be interesting to see what the final document will look like when it's released in November, and what happens when QSA's turn the PCI guidance into audit findings and recommendations.
