PCI Awareness Training – Data Security Standards
This PCI Awareness Training course develops awareness and best-practice behaviors for protecting payment card data. As breach upon breach reveals, there are real limits to technology’s ability to protect an organization’s sensitive data. Consequently, the greatest return on your information security investment now lies with your people—the most vulnerable endpoint of all. The PCI data security standards reflect this fact. That’s why the most recent update of the PCI-DSS emphasizes user awareness training—it’s absolutely essential to making PCI security work.
The PCI-DSS Emphasizes Awareness Training
MediaPro’s PCI Security Awareness Training is a foundational component of your PCI compliance program. Security awareness training—mandated by the PCI-DSS 3.2 standard (regulation 12.6.1)—will not only position your organization to avoid or mitigate breaches, but will boost your trustworthiness overall, yielding greater customer loyalty—and profitability.
Our award-winning interactive courses are focused on role-specific PCI awareness training. MediaPro’s role-based PCI content is part of the Adaptive Security Library™, which allows you to select just the training content you want in order to deploy the right training to the right people. Using our unique role-based selector, you can assign or allow employees to select the role that applies to them. Make sure your employees are properly trained on how to safeguard and protect payment card data, and in the process, help keep your organization safe and secure.
