PCI Security Standards Council
WAKEFIELD, Mass., 17 May 2018 — Today the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) published a
minor revision to the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which businesses around the world use to
safeguard payment card data before, during and after a purchase is made. PCI DSS version 3.2.1
replaces version 3.2 to account for effective dates and Secure Socket Layer (SSL)/early Transport Layer
Security (TLS) migration deadlines that have passed. No new requirements are added in PCI DSS v3.2.1.
PCI DSS v3.2 remains valid through 31 December 2018 and will be retired as of 1 January 2019.
