The PCI Security Standards Council is expected to soon release guidance on what constitutes secure mobilepayments software. In light of recent developments in the payment card industry, including the development of mobile devices that substitute for cards and mobile payments generally, the Council is reportedly developing guidelines not only for mobile payments, but also for encryption, tokenization, wireless security, and virtualization. The Council also is reportedly working on a simplified process for merchants to complete Self-Assessment Questionnaires, such as a common, online form that would route merchants to the appropriate Questionnaire of the five available based on the information that they input.
