Course Brief

PCI DSS is one of the most technical security standards in vogue today. The requirements are extremely granular, and go to the extent of how specific configurations are to be applied on system and network components, including which ports, protocols and services may or may not be used. Knowledge of PCI DSS is useful not only for securing payment card data, but also towards building an enterprise security management program.

PCI mandates security maintenance activities such as quarterly VA, wireless scan, data discovery scans, bi-yearly firewall rule review, quarterly internal audit, annual risk assessment, etc. Understanding the intent of each requirement and its implementation can help in establishing a sound security management practice within any enterprise.
