Is your business using outdated SSL and TLS versions?

SSL and The PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) has announced that it is extending the migration completion date to 30 June 2018 for transitioning from SSL and TLS 1.0 to a secure version of TLS (currently v1.1 or higher). The extended migration date is provided by the PCI SSC as of December 2015 and supersedes the original dates issued in both PCI DSS v3.1 and in the “Migrating from SSL and early TLS” Information Supplement in April 2015.
