Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) Awareness Training

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) Awareness Training

Anyone working with credit cards, debit cards and prepaid cards needs to understand and comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards. Developed by the five major card brands, the purpose of the standards is to ensure that organizations processing, storing or transmitting credit card information maintain a secure environment. This includes point-of-sales vendors, financial institutions, retailers, restaurants, hospitality companies, online merchants and all entities involved in payment card processing.

Conducing annual PCI training is one of the compliance requirements of PCI Data Security Standards. Organizations that ignore or violate the PCI standards and requirements can be fined, lose cyber insurance coverage and forfeit the ability to accept payment cards.

As part of an organization’s holistic approach to payment card security, implementing annual training provides employees with practical information about the PCI standards and principles, and best practices for protecting cardholder data, spotting fraud and reporting potential problems.
