Description 

The PCI DSS Implementation training course outline

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is administered by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SCC) with the specific objectives of decreasing payment card fraud across the internet and increasing the security of confidential payment card information.

Every organization that stores or transmits or processes card holder data must comply with PCI DSS standard. Compliance to the standard is regulated and enforced by payment card brands (VISA, MasterCard, American Express) directly or through their partner relationships with ‘acquirer’ banks.

This three-day course, fully updated for PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) v3.2, provides a comprehensive introduction to the Standard and delivers practical guidance on all aspects of implementing a PCI DSS compliance program.

Practical guidance and real-world examples will be taught, providing attendees with a full understanding of how to implement the different aspects of a PCI program. Day one of this course covers PCI DSS Foundation and days two and three cover the implementation.
