The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) announced
that it has published the PCI Mobile Payment Acceptance Security Guidelines for Merchants as End-Users.
"When considering mobile payment acceptance, merchants need to go in with their eyes open. And that’s what the intent of this guidance is, to help merchants understand the risks so that together with developers and device vendors they can safely implement a solution that will enable mobile commerce to flourish."
The guidance goes hand-in-hand with recommendations the Council published in September 2012 for mobile app developers and device vendors on designing appropriate security controls that provide secure mobile payment acceptance solutions for merchants.
