The PCI DSS Council recently announced that a new standard for commercial off the shelf (COTS) mobile devices, PCI Contactless Payments on COTS (CPoC™) mobile devices, is to be released in December 2019. The current PCI DSS standard covers contactless payment methods, but the new publication provides detail on the mobile payment options.
On October 28, the council is releasing an RFC on PCI DSS version 4.0 to assessors to provide feedback on the draft of the new version. New and revised requirements are expected as well as a focus on security objectives for organizations. PCI DSS version 4.0 is expected to be published at the end of 2020.
