The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is administered by the PCI SSC (Security Standards Council) to help prevent payment card fraud and strengthen payment card data security. All organisations that accept, store, transmit or process cardholder data must comply.
When implemented correctly, the PCI DSS helps organisations secure cardholder data. Where this cardholder data includes any information that could be used to identify the individual, it is classed as personal data under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). If that data is compromised, the breached organisation is likely to be liable under both the PCI DSS and the GDPR.
Complying with the PCI DSS is not a simple task. If a mistake is made when implementing the Standard, organisations will struggle to achieve compliance and expose themselves to data breaches and regulatory fines. To combat this, we have created PCI DSS training courses to help you better understand the Standard and start your organisation off on the right track.
PCI DSS Foundation Training Course
Developed by a QSA (Qualified Security Assessor), this one-day Foundation course has been designed for those who want to learn how the PCI DSS is implemented. It outlines the importance of the Standard to all organisations processing, storing or transmitting payment card information.
This course qualifies for 7 CPD/CPE points.
PCI DSS Implementation Training Course
Building on the PCI DSS Foundation course, this three-day training course has a deeper focus on the PCI DSS and its implementation. It’s aimed at those who are responsible for implementing and managing the PCI DSS in their organisation, and has been fully updated for PCI DSS v3.2.
This course qualifies for 21 CPD/CPE points.
