On August 28, 2018, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) announced the launch of the PCI Data Security Essentials Evaluation Tool and updates to educational resources to raise awareness of the relevance of increasing security in payments. 

The evaluation tool aims to support small merchants while conducting data security essential evaluations on their payment systems. Merchants may use the online evaluation platform to download their data security evaluation forms, according to their respective payment systems. The system also allows users to conduct a primary assessment of their security systems, covering features related to overview, risk profile, potential risks, threats and recommended protective measures.
