PCI DSS compliance training course rated highly by delegates

/ Governance Ltd, the PCI and information security experts have reported that their PCI Foundation Training Course was rated by delegates as highly beneficial to their organisation's PCI DSS-compliance project. The next course takes place in London in December and attendees can save ÂŁ100 if they book now here

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was put together by the PCI Security Standards Council. The purpose of the PCI Standard is to decrease payment card fraud across the internet and increase credit card data security. Every organisation that stores, transmits or processes card holder data must comply with the PCI DSS, which is enforced by the 'acquiring bank' through whom you have your merchant account.

The PCI DSS compliance procedure can take anything from a day to many weeks, depending on what is uncovered by the vulnerability assessment scan and the self-assessment questionnaire. PCI DSS training is a proven method for acquiring the practical knowledge necessary for achieving PCI DSS compliance. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in heavy fines, restrictions, or even permanent expulsion from payment card acceptance programmes.

The PCI Foundation Training Course ( provides comprehensive and practical coverage of all aspects of implementing the PCI DSS. It is particularly suited for Information Security Managers and other staff responsible for, or involved in, their organisation's PCI DSS compliance activities. It will help delegates develop an efficient, cost-effective plan for meeting the PCI DSS requirements.

One delegate commented, "The course was very good and gave a good overall overview of PCI DSS and tips on the approach to implementing." Other attendees described the course as "well prepared course with excellent content" and "very useful and concise course".
