Covering Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (version 2.0)
Take the pain out of understanding the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) with this e-learning course.
Fighting fraud and identity theft, the PCI DSS exists to protect the personal data of payment cardholders. This new course from IT Governance is designed to increase employees’ awareness of the PCI DSS requirements, and to provide clear and simple explanations of what companies and individual employees must do to meet the requirements of the current version (v2.0) of the standard.

PCI DSS Compliance Requirements:
Failure to comply with these requirements will result in heavy fines, restrictions or even permanent expulsion from payment card acceptance programmes. More importantly, in the end, failure to meet your security obligations leaves you vulnerable to a data breach. And if you let your customers down in that way, the consequences for your business could be terminal.
‘The content of the training provided was excellent, I thought. It was a good mix of the basics, for those new to the idea, and specifics for those who were a little more advanced. The website itself was very responsive and pages loaded quickly.’
John MacKenzie, IT Manager, Coulomb Technologies, Inc.
