Watch Questions with the Council: PCI DSS v4.0 and the Customized Approach


In the second installment of the “Questions with the Council” video series, Data Security Standards Manager, Kandyce Young, answers the payment industry’s questions about PCI DSS v4.0. The questions focus specifically on the customized approach and compensating controls. Questions include:

  • Is the customized approach right for our organization?  
  • What is a situation where a compensating control should be used, versus the customized approach?  
  • What is a “legitimate documented technical or business constraint” when implementing a compensating control?
  • Can the same QSA design and asses a customized control?
