How SafeStack Academy can help you meet PCI DSS compliance requirements

Learn about how courses in our Security Awareness and Secure Development programmes can turn your team into PCI DSS superheroes.

In our courses, we cover PCI DSS compliance requirements including:

  • Understanding information security
  • Protecting stored cardholder data
  • Developing and maintaining secure systems and applications
  • Testing security systems and processes

What is PCI DSS and why is it important?

PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, and organisations need to meet this standard if they’re handling credit card data.

The objective of PCI DSS is to protect card data from threats and to minimise data breach risks.

By meeting PCI DSS requirements, you’re making sure you’re accepting credit card payments and handling cardholder data in the right ways, and you’re keeping your business and customers safe.

We’ve created SafeStack Academy’s PCI DSS content based on our hands-on experience of helping teams navigate PCI DSS compliance. We promise our courses will help you do the same.

How can SafeStack Academy help?

By joining either or both of our SafeStack Academy programmes, you’ll get the following.

Security Awareness programme

Budget friendly security awareness training for your whole team, with new courses every month.

Secure Development programme

Ongoing training that helps your development team build and maintain secure systems and applications.

We deliver a new course every quarter, and we issue digital badges for each completed course, proving learners’ achievements.
