DB Networks has joined the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council.
The company, which develops behavioral analysis technology for use in database security, will work with the council as it develops standards for card payments, transaction security and data protection.
DB Networks is joining the council as a "participating member," which allows it to provide input in the standards setting process. It will receive previews of drafts of standards and supporting materials to provide feedback.
The company will also have the opportunity to recommend new initiatives for consideration to the council, participate in webinars and other sessions.
Joining the PCI Security Standards Council allows us to add our expertise in database security along with the many other talented organizations on the committees which are dedicated to protecting payment card information at rest and on the network, says Brett Helm, chairman and CEO of DB Networks, in a Dec. 10 press release.
The PCI council released version 3.0 of its data security standards last month. The new version, which takes effect next year, contains only minor changes but provides recommendations for best practices and enhanced testing procedures.
