PCI DSS Training

If you accept card payments, PCI DSS training is a must

Every card transaction comes with a risk to the payer, payee, and payment processor. The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is designed to mitigate fraud by protecting cardholder data. It applies to all merchants and service providers that transmit, process, or store payment card data. Banks and card processors can audit at any time. To be compliant, pass an audit, and avoid fines, you need three things:

  1. Specialist knowledge of the 12 technical requirements and 6 control objectives
  2. Systems and processes that implement those requirements and objectives 
  3. A formal staff awareness program and a documented staff awareness training policy along with records that show annual training has taken place 

Our training courses cover the first two points. Our short and engaging staff awareness e-learning courses are available year-round and can be offered to staff at least once a year to support compliance with clause 12.6 of the PCI DSS, which mandates that organizations implement a formal program to ensure staff attend annual security awareness training.

PCI DSS assessors will request evidence in the form of a security awareness training policy and records that demonstrate that all staff have attended the required training.IT Governance’s PCI DSS training courses will enable you to understand the PCI DSS’s staff awareness requirements and implement a PCI DSS compliance program in your organization.

We provide staff awareness e-learning courses, and in-house training courses for all levels, from foundation to advanced courses for IT practitioners and lead implementers in stages and seeking compliance with the Standard.
