Training course outline

Version 4.0 of the PCI DSS 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.

If you require the skills to lead and manage a PCI DSS v3.2.1 implementation project, please purchase our Self-paced online course.

  • Acquire the skills to apply the requirements to your organisation;

I have sat many courses over the years and those delivered by IT Governance are always of high calibre. This one surpassed the already high expectations. The course instructor had such an in depth working knowledge of the requirements and passion that was infectious. Brilliant course, strong content and professionally delivered. Thoroughly recommended.

Excellent course, well delivered by our instructor with "lived" experience of the subject matter. I felt like I came away with a very high level of understanding and clarity around implementing and managing PCI-DSS requirements. Jason H.

This course helped me no end in understanding the standard. This would have been a 5 out of 5 but with English not my first language, I did find it challenging to keep up with the pace of the course. I would add though that the instructor went out of her way to check my understanding of the course materials and content; even down to the practice exam - explaining context of possible questions in clear terms. This led to me achieving a decisive pass mark. The course thoroughly met my expectations and I would have no hesitation in recommending this training and IT Governance.

I found the PCI course to be really enjoyable and useful. The course instructor explained the PCI Standard very well in the context of implementation and was able to make good use of real-world examples that added to the context of the learning

5 stars out of 5
The course was really good. The instructor made us all feel at ease and prepared us very well for the exam at the end of the course. She encouraged an environment where we were able to collaborate and ask as many questions as we liked and checked our understanding throughout. The course more than met with my expectations, absolutely value for money, 5-star trainer, course materials and a simple booking process - would highly recommend

I did the Foundation and Implementation PCI Courses - I found the courses to be fast paced and very informative (this would have been a 5 star rating had I had a bit more knowledge about the standard before the training). The trainer was excellent; very interesting and clearly knew the PCI standard. What I also found to be fantastic was the trainer's ability and willingness to apply real-world examples and also allowed plenty of revision time ahead of the tests; answering specific concerns and questions with those who needed help and guidance.

Extremely well delivered with good content on the subject matter and the chance to workshop specific scenarios.
