I'm happy to say that there appears to be some good news on the PCI DSS front with the promise of a SIG being formed this year for virtualization. This is a good thing.
You'll remember my calls for better guidance for both virtualization and ultimately cloud computing from the council given the proliferation of these technologies and the impact they will have on both security and compliance.
In that light, news comes from Troy Leach, technical director of the PCI Security Standards Council via a kind note to me from Michael Hoesing:
The PCI SSC Participating Organization program allows industry stakeholders an opportunity to provide feedback on all standards and supporting procedures. Information to join as a Participating Organization can be found here on our website.
This is a good first step. if you've got input, make sure to contribute!
