About the course:
Our instructor-led PCI DSS Training Course aims to address a significant requirement of the updated PCI DSS 3.2.1, which is to ensure that relevant training is given to any software developers involved in developing and maintaining such financial applications and services.
If your web applications or systems have any involvement with processing or storing credit card data in any form, then the PCI DSS will almost certainly affect you. This still applies even if your web services / code is not financial by nature, but still resides on a shared resource which also stores or processes credit card data.
Security breaches and failures can lead to harsh penalties from member organisations (such as Visa and MasterCard), and the nature of the penalty depends on various factors such as the extent of non compliance with PCI data security standards found during a forensic investigation, and number of affected accounts / records breached.
The PCI Data Security Standards draw heavily on the current OWASP Top Ten Web Application Security Risks.
These largely affect cross-platform web technologies, and as such our course can be suitable for anyone involved in web development; our hands-on exercises and code demonstrations are delivered with examples in ASP.NET (with VB.NET or C#) or Java, but we can tailor the course for on-site delivery and focus on your development language / platform of choice (PHP, HTML5, Python et al).
This course isn’t just about ticking boxes and jumping through hoops – we aim to instil a good understanding of the importance of designing, developing and deploying secure web applications, and this course will be useful for any web developers who want to improve the robustness of their code. But if you have a particular need to top-up existing skills and don't need to cover the full syllabus, let us know and we can explore customisation options for you.
