PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), a global forum for the development of payment card security standards, has testified that PCI Standards provide a strong foundation for card data protection.

The open forum also testified before the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade, on the work it is doing to create global standards and resources to secure customers’ card data.

During the hearing on ‘Protecting Consumer Information: Can Data Breaches Be Prevented?,’ PCI assured that the global standards will help businesses take multi-layered approach to tackle with card data theft.

Speaking at the event, PCI SSC general manager, Bob Russo, said congressional hearings underscored the complexity of data security issues and why businesses need to develop a multi-layered approach to protecting their customers.

"The PCI Standards provide a strong foundation for this approach, helping organizations make payment security part of their everyday business practices by addressing people, process and technology.

"We look forward to continuing our role as a leader in this area and building on the thoughtful and constructive dialogue we heard this week to drive global payment security forward," Russo added.
