New PCI DSS webinar series just launched

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was created to enhance cardholder data security. It is the result of collaboration between the major credit card brands: American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard and Visa. Any merchant or service provider that processes, transmits or stores cardholder data is required to comply with the Standard.

With the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) taking effect on 25 May 2018, the penalties for not taking the right precautions to protect personal data are about to get worse for many organisations. They could be looking at a fine of up to €20 million (about £17.8 million) or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is greater. Under the new EU legislation, a breach of cardholder data is likely to be liable under both the PCI DSS and the GDPR.

IT Governance is launching a new webinar series to support organisations with their PCI DSS projects and help them manage and reduce their payment card risk.
