As security standards continue to evolve, some PIN entry devices are approaching their expiration. The PCI Security Standards Council and Visa recently announced that devices approved in the first version of the PCI PIN program (way back in 2004!) and not subsequently approved for higher levels of security are now at their expiration point. Stakeholders with Version 1.x devices should actively plan for the replacement of those devices, as they are much more vulnerable to compromise and may lead to theft of your cardholder information. See the full expiration announcement here.
How do you know whether your device is reaching expiration? Different manufacturers use different ways to identify them. Look for markings indicating the PCI PTS PED approval version, and if you are having trouble reach out to our experts.
