PCI DSS Foundation Training

The PCI DSS is administered by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SCC) with the specific objectives of decreasing payment card fraud across the internet and increasing the security of confidential payment card information.

Every organisation that stores or transmits or processes card holder data must comply with PCI DSS standard. Compliance to the standard is regulated and enforced by payment card brands, such as VISA, MasterCard and American Express, directly or through their partner relationships with ‘acquirer’ banks.

Developed by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), this one day training course builds a clear understanding of the PCI DSS and enables you to plan a cost-effective, time-efficient compliance project.


Who should attend this course?

Anyone involved in a PCI DSS compliance project who would like to develop a background on the standard and its requirements.

If you need a more comprehensive and practical coverage of all aspects of the implementation and continued maintenance of PCI DSS, please see our 3-day PCI DSS Implementation Training Course.

For a practical session on how to complete the PCI DSS v3.2 Self Assessment Questionnaires (SAQs), please see our one-day PCI DSS v3.2 SAQ Workshop.
