PCI DSS Overview

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Training Course

The University is required to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a worldwide information security standard defined and published by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. The standard was created to help payment card industry organisations that process card payments prevent payment card fraud through increased controls around data and its exposure to compromise. The standard applies to all organisations that hold, process, or exchange cardholder information. This standard is therefore part of the University's Financial Regulations and the University must ensure that its Staff, business processes and technical systems conform with the PCI DSS standard. This course is for staff in areas which accept card payments, have access to cardholder data, or roles which make it possible to obtain access to cardholder data. It will provide an overview of the PCIDSS standard and some of the processes and procedures which must be followed to comply with it.

The training covers:

  • Introduction to the security standards
  • Cardholder data around the institution
  • Locations, systems and processes affected
  • Common vulnerabilities and types of attack
  • Securing point-of-sale devices
  • Where to find more information
