The importance of PCI DSS training

The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is an information security standard designed to reduce payment card fraud by using security controls that protect cardholder data. All merchants and service providers that process, transmit or store cardholder data must comply with the PCI DSS.

PCI DSS v4.0 was published on 31 March 2022 to meet the evolving cyber security needs of the payments industry, promote security as a continuous process and enable organisations to use different methods to achieve their security objectives.

The Standard specifies that an organisation must implement 12 complex technical and business requirements. These include installing network security controls, applying secure system configuration, testing systems and maintaining an information security policy.

All service providers and larger merchants require qualified staff with the skills and knowledge to implement these requirements.
