PCI DSS Implementation Training Course

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.

Designed by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), this three-day training course aims to develop the skills required to ensure that any organization meets the requirements of the standard as defined by their payment card brand and their acquiring bank.
