Course overview

The PCI DSS Staff Awareness course

The PCI DSS is administered by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to decrease payment card fraud across the Internet and increase the security of confidential payment card information.

Every organisation that stores, transmits or processes cardholder data must comply with the PCI DSS. Compliance is regulated and enforced by payment card brands (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB and Discover) directly or through their partner relationships with ‘acquirer’ banks.

The PCI DSS requires organisations to “implement a formal security awareness program to make all personnel aware of the cardholder data security policy and procedures” (Requirement 12.6).

Course objective

This course is designed to increase employees’ awareness of the PCI DSS requirements and provide clear and simple explanations of what organisations and individual employees must do to meet those requirements.

Target audience

This web-delivered course is targeted at all employees in any organisation that stores, transmits or processes cardholder data, and that must comply with the PCI DSS.
