PCI DSS Training Courses

Staff awareness and training is fundamental for effective information security management and for meeting regulatory and compliance requirements. For an organisation to comply with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), a formal security awareness programme must be implemented.

Our PCI DSS training courses will enable you to understand what a PCI DSS-compliant programme is, and implement one in your organisation.

We provide staff awareness and training courses (both classroom and in-house) for all staff, from foundation-level to advanced courses for IT practitioners and lead implementers seeking compliance with the Standard.

Did you know?

If your organisation processes, transmits or stores payment card data, you must comply with the PCI DSS. 

PCI DSS clause 12.6 requires you to implement a formal security awareness programme to make all employees aware of the importance of cardholder data security. Evidence that you have conducted formal staff awareness training must be retained.
