The Council has led payment security initiatives for over 10 years. Payments are changing and the change in the Council’s governance structure means that all organizations can now help shape the payment standards of the future. But that only happens if various organizations from across the payment ecosystem participate.
Becoming a PPO at the PCI SSC allows companies to stay ahead of emerging security threats, help influence the development of security standards, network with industry peers, improve compliance and reduce costs, and enhance their reputation.
