PCI knowledge earns employees up to £65,000 a year

There continues to be a need for skilled security experts in the payment card industry. Financial fraud losses across payment cards, remote banking and cheques totalled £768.8 million last year, according to Financial Fraud Action UK (FFA UK), and in order to plug these huge losses many companies are luring skilled staff with generous salaries.

ITJobsWatch claims that there are more than 100 current vacancies for jobs requiring a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) qualification, and the average salary for some is as high as £65,000 a year.

Our products, including PCI DSS training courses, can help you become qualified.

How does training help?

All companies that store, process or handle payment card data are required to comply with the PCI DSS, so they need to have a skilled professional on board. Our PCI DSS training courses cover all aspects of implementing the Standard and ensure year-to-year maintenance of the certification.

Depending on your level of expertise, you may be interested in either our PCI DSS Foundation Training Course or our PCI DSS Implementation Training Course.

The one-day Foundation-level course is ideal for anyone involved in a PCI compliance project who would like to develop their knowledge of the Standard and its requirements. It delivers practical guidance on how the Standard applies to your organisation and helps you to plan a cost-effective, time-efficient compliance project.

The three-day Implementation course provides comprehensive and practical coverage of implementing a PCI DSS compliance programme. It aims to develop the skills required to make sure that any organisation meets the requirements of the Standard, and is appropriate for those who wish to fill senior positions such as a PCI DSS auditor or PCI DSS project manager.

If you pass the exam, you will achieve a PCI DSS Implementation (PCI IM) qualification.
