Master PCI DSS v4.0 and its requirements

Organizations that store, transmit or handle bankcard data all have a growing stake in the security of this data, and this is all the more true with the publication of the European regulation on the protection of personal data (GDPR). Faced with the risks of fraud, the PCI Council has developed standards aimed at protecting bankcard data.

This training course is divided into three days; a first day aimed at a broad audience in order to grasp the challenges of bank data protection and the fundamentals of PCI DSS, a second day focused on the tools needed by PCI DSS compliance managers, and a third, more technical day presenting PCI DSS requirements in detail.
