Netsurion and EventTracker today announced that John Christly, Global CISO and an information security industry veteran, has been named to the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) Cloud Special Interest Group (SIG). Christly is already heavily involved in the PCI SSC as a member of its small business task force while seeking a seat on its board of advisors, to be announced in May.
The goal of this new group for 2017 is to discuss and update the PCI SSC Cloud Computing Guidelines, first released in 2013, to reflect modern advancements in the technology and new security risks. The group began this month and is expected to publish deliverables by the end of this year.
The paper is intended to provide guidance on using cloud technologies and considerations for maintaining PCI DSS controls in cloud environments. This guidance builds on that provided in the PCI DSS Virtualization Guidelines and is intended for organizations using, or thinking of using, providing or assessing cloud technologies as part of a cardholder data environment (CDE).
According to the Council, considerations may include:
