/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance, an approved PCI QSA company, have reported that the PCI Foundation - Overview and Introduction training course is the place to start if you are new to the requirements for complying with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The next one-day course takes place on 25 March in London. Bookings can be made online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1017.aspx.
Merchants and member service providers (MSPs) who store, process or transmit cardholder data have to comply with the PCI DSS, which is administered by the PCI Security Standards Council.
The PCI Foundation - Overview and Introduction training course is designed for anyone who is involved in their organisation's PCI DSS compliance activities, from IT staff through to the HR and finance department. 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 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 cardholder data can better protect themselves and their customers.
The PCI Foundation - Overview and Introduction training course is designed and led by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) 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 the PCI DSS.
Booking onto the course can be made online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1017.aspx.
