PCI Standard’s Multi-factor Authentication Mandate Delayed ‘Til 2018

To all of my friends out there working in a PCI-applicable environment, this is good and very relevant news.  You have been granted a reprieve.  A couple of the more difficult compliance requirements in DSS 3.2 (SSL/TLS & multi-factor authentication) have been deferred until 2018.  Please take this time to plan and implement accordingly.
