It is vital to protect payment card data in order to prevent fraudulent transactions and misuse. This course will guide you through the use of the PCI DSS v4.0, which has been designed to ensure the appropriate protection of payment card data. PCI DSS is an information security standard for organizations that handle card data associated with the major card brands Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, UnionPay and JCB. Compliance with the standard is mandatory for all organizations involved in storing, communicating, or otherwise handling debit and credit card data.

This course will help you understand the structure of the PCI DSS v4.0 and what is involved in meeting the 12 high-level requirements, with a focus on those requirements which can be particularly challenging. It provides practical guidance on ways to reduce the scope of the standard, making sure you apply the appropriate levels of security that fulfil compliance requirements, which can often reduce costs. You’ll also learn what the standard’s reporting requirements are and whether reporting needs to be done through a qualified security assessor (QSA) or through one of numerous self-assessment questionnaires (SAQs).

This course aims to assist organizations that store, process, communicate or otherwise handle credit or debit card data, whether they are merchants or service providers, to understand the requirements of the PCI DSS v4.0 and how the standard applies to them.
