/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance, an approved PCI QSA company, has announced a special offer on its PCI Foundation - Overview and Introduction training course taking place on 25th March in London. Delegates can now save £200 if they book on the March course and the few remaining places can be booked online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1017.aspx.
All organisations that store or handle payment card information must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
PCI DSS is often seen as a recommendation rather than a requirement – this
is not the case. PCI DSS is not a UK law, but it is a regulation against which the above organisations must become compliant or risk harsh penalties:
• Fines for non-compliance – accumulating up to hundreds of thousands of pounds
• Fines for breaches – unlimited, depending on company size and response time
• Stricter security audits
• Losing the ability to accept payment card transactions
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 card holder 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 brings years of knowledge and experience to the classroom.
The course can be booked online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1017.aspx.
