Today, the PCI Security Standards Council, an open global forum for the development of payment card security standards, announced that the PCI Data Security Standard and Payment Application Data Security Standard 3.0 are now available in nine languages.
PCI 3.0 helps organizations make payment security part of their everyday activities. PCI SSC general manager Bob Russo said organizations worldwide can benefit from learning about PCI Standards in their native language.
"It's important that organizations around the globe have the resources they need to protect card data," Russo said. "We're happy to make the PCI Standards available in a number of languages to assist organizations as they work to make payment security part of their business-as-usual practices."
The PCI SSC website supports translated pages and PCI materials including the new PCI DSS v3.0 and PA-DSS v3.0 in the following languages: Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
The organization has a sponsored translation policy for entities that wish to raise awareness and adoption of PCI Standards in their market through local language material provision.
