/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance, the information security and PCI DSS compliance experts, have today launched the PCI Foundation - Overview and Introduction training course in London, which is designed to help organisations processing credit and debit card data comply with the PCI DSS standard. By becoming PCI DSS-compliant organisations ensure they are not charged extra by the banks for non-compliance.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “Meeting the PCI DSS standard requirements brings organisations significant benefits: not only do they save money by not having to pay non-compliance fees, but they put tighter security controls in
place meaning that they considerably reduce the risk from security breach.”
Data published by analytics firm, FICO revealed that card fraud levels remain high in Europe and that criminals have shifted fraud activity towards using Internet channels that carry less risk, rather than being present in a shop when making a fraudulent purchase.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) aims to decrease payment card fraud across the Internet and increase credit card data security. By becoming compliant organisations processing card holder data can better protect themselves and their customers.
Being compliant with the PCI provisions means understanding the PCI Scope and knowing what system components - within one’s organisation - must actually meet the stated requirements. This can be best achieved through specialist PCI training.
The PCI Foundation - Overview and Introduction training course is designed for anyone who is involved in their organisation's PCI DSS compliance activities. It represents an essential step that takes professionals from uncertainty to clarity about all the key steps in preparing for and achieving compliance with the PCI DSS for the first time.
The PCI Foundation - Overview and Introduction training course has been designed by a former QSA (Qualified Security Assessor) who knows all the ins and outs of PCI compliance and will help delegates develop an efficient and cost-effective plan for meeting the requirements of this essential compliance standard.
