Global PCI DSS Training Program Reduces Cost of Meeting Compliance Requirements

Marketwire SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA Trustwave, the global leader in Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance management solutions, has introduced a new education program to train IT professionals on the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This program helps customers interpret the requirements and gives them the knowledge to achieve and maintain compliance in the most cost efficient manner. Based on Trustwave's Assessment Methodology(tm), developed through more than 4,000 PCI DSS engagements, this education program is only available from Trustwave.

Compliance with the PCI DSS is a requirement for all entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data, and has been endorsed by all the major card brands -- Visa Inc., MasterCard Worldwide, Discover Network, American Express and JCB. Trustwave has conducted more PCI DSS engagements worldwide than all other assessors combined, and brings this experience to bear in this innovative education series.

The training program provides an overview of the PCI DSS regulatory environment, card processing vulnerabilities and threats, and an in-depth review of each requirement. The two-day series taps into a global knowledge base from the most experienced team in the world. The educational series is designed for executives, compliance officers, information security and information technology professionals, to help build an organizational PCI DSS understanding and implement a methodology for the compliance process.
