PCI compliance is a big issue, and one that can have potential negative effects for any merchant that’s found to be out of compliance with its security standards. As a web developer, it’s important for you to be up on PCI requirements not only as a service to your existing clients, but also to ensure you don’t create a negative reputation for yourself. They’re hard to recover from, after all. The good news is, you can get all the information you need straight from the horse’s mouth, by way of the PCI Standards Training Program.
The training program is a two-day course that teaches you exactly what quality assessors (those individuals responsible for performing PCI DSS assessments) are trained to look for—all the better to ensure your clients pass muster. The course will also teach you how to create an ongoing program of self-assessment your clients can implement to ensure continued compliance.
How Much Does It Cost?
The $995 fee may seem steep at first glance, but when you take into consideration the overall benefit you’ll be gaining—a benefit of knowledge that you can use to implement PCI data security practices for all of your clients—it’s an investment no web developer can afford to do without.
