About the course

PCI Foundation Overview & Introduction Training Course
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.
