As an Official Champion of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), the Council will be sharing educational resources on payment security best practices on the PCI Perspectives blog, and through our Twitter (@PCISSC) and LinkedIn pages.

- Week 1: Be Cyber Smart: Best practices to protect data.
- Week 2: Fight the Phish: Resources to help identify phishing attacks.
- Week 3: Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week: Information to support the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.
- Week 4: Cybersecurity First: Guidance to make cybersecurity an organizational priority.
Week 4: Cybersecurity First: Guidance to make cybersecurity an organizational priority.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forever changed how companies and employees view working from home. It is estimated that 25-30% of the workforce will be working from home multiple days a week by the end of 2021. In the rush to set up remote work environments, it's possible organizations and workers overlooked cybersecurity best practices. To help bridge this knowledge gap, PCI SSC has created a low cost 45-minute training to educate organizations and remote workers on the basics of working from home in a secure manner.
The Work From Home Security Awareness Training was designed in such a way that no previous knowledge of the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is required. In fact, no in-depth knowledge of cybersecurity is required. The training provides basic security awareness and practices to the broader community.
Below is a 30 second snapshot of the training:
