TOPIC(S):Evolution of payments security and threat landscape. How PCI standards are evolving to support security needs of the industry
PRESENTER(S):  Emma Sutcliffe (Senior Director, Data Security Standards, PCI Security Standards Council)

The security of payment card data affects everybody, from customers to merchants and financial institutions. The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) consists of technical and operational requirements that help keep cyber defenses primed against attacks aimed at stealing payment card data. For over ten years, PCI DSS has provided an actionable framework for developing robust payment card data security processes. PCI DSS version 4.0 is currently in development and is anticipated to introduce new security requirements and a new approach to validation to accommodate evolving payments environments.  Join this session to hear key insights from the PCI Security Standards Council about the evolution of payment security and the threat landscape, and how this is shaping the future of PCI DSS.


Ms. Sutcliffe oversees a number of PCI security standards, including the PCI DSS and PA-DSS. Ms. Sutcliffe chairs PCI SSC’s Technical Working Group (TWG) and the Tokenization Working Group, where she works closely with the Payment Brands and Affiliate members to develop standards, supporting documentation, and guidance papers. Ms. Sutcliffe has over 15 years’ information security experience and is a current CISSP, CISM, and CISA.
