PCI DSS practical knowledge crucial for achieving compliance

/EINPresswire.com/IT Governance Ltd, the PCI and information security experts, are advising organisations which must comply with the PCI DSS requirements, that successful implementation of the standard can only be achieved through well trained staff. The PCI Foundation Training Course from IT Governance, currently at 30% off list price, is essential for anyone involved in their organisation's PCI DSS-compliance activities. Course places can be booked online here www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/1858.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, 'Compliance with the PCI DSS standard requires both action and skills. If you cannot afford to hire a consultant, you must train staff internally to deliver the project. The fastest way to achieve compliance is to attend a PCI DSS training course which will enable the project team to develop an efficient and cost-effective plan for meeting these requirements.'

The PCI Foundation Training Course provides a comprehensive and practical coverage of all aspects of implementing the PCI DSS. It explains the 12 key requirements of the PCI DSS and their multitude of mandatory sub-requirements. It offers insight on how to effectively scope an organisation's cardholder data environment and identifies areas which should be addressed as a matter of urgency.

The PCI Foundation Training Course can be combined with the PCI DSS v2.0 Documentation Compliance Toolkit, which will enable delegates to implement very quickly what they have learned during the course. Find out more here www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/1337.

The PCI DSS v2.0 Documentation Compliance Toolkit provides document templates for all the mandatory PCI DSS policies, implementation guidelines and guidance on integrating with ISO27001 - the international standard for an information security management system.

Organisations can book delegates onto the course online here www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/1858. Course places can also be booked directly with the friendly, helpful IT Governance service centre team on telephone number +44 (0)845 070 1750.
