For organizations that accept payment cards, protecting payment card information by providing PCI training and staying compliant with PCI DSS is critical. As a matter of fact, PCI DSS applies to all organizations involved in payment card processing. This includes merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other organizations that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data (SAD).
If your organization handles payment cards, PCI DSS requires you to protect cardholder data and sensitive authentication data wherever it is processed, stored, or transmitted — and doing so is easier said than done. Weak PCI training caused two well-known retailers to compromise 40 million and 56 million credit cards in 2013 and 2014, respectively. In fact, according to a Verizon report on PCI DSS compliance, nearly half (47.5%) of the organizations Verizon assessed
for interim PCI DSS compliance validation had not maintained all DSS controls in 2017.
