Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, also known as PCI DSS, is a set of standards that all companies storing, processing and/or transmitting cardholder data must abide by.
PCI DSS compliance is a legal requirement by law and compromised card holder data can badly affect customers, organisations and financial institutions. One PCI DSS issue is enough to seriously impact an organisation and affect the trust of customers for the long term, not to mention it could result in hefty fines and possible legal action. From a customer’s point of view, PCI DSS compliance gives them assurance that any details that they provide to operatives of a sensitive nature won’t be compromised in any way.
The course covers the new PCI DSS V.3 Standard, which came into full effect on the 1st January 2015. V.3 places increased emphasis on employee training and demands all organisations provide annual employee PCI awareness training.
Interactive elements, knowledge checks and real life situations ensure learner engagement, reinforce learning and keep the training relevant.
