International Data Privacy Day is designed to raise awareness and promote best practices for protecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust. It is a day that looks to the future and reminds us that we cannot let our guard down. All organizations can take steps to improve their security posture.
Education and training is a fundamental step. You can do your part by making a commitment to growing data security awareness in your organization. But you might wonder what training and support you should consider for yourself or provide to your staff?
Security awareness training should result in the ability to practice safe computing which ultimately protects cardholder data throughout the business. Training experiences should help users develop skills that will help them to make real-world decisions based on sound security practices. The PCI Council’s Awareness course promotes best practices for protecting payment information by boosting PCI knowledge.
In support of Data Privacy Day, we’re offering FREE PCI Awareness training to the first 1,000 people to register between noon EST on 28 January and noon EST on 29 January. PCI Awareness training helps companies educate employees who handle payment card data on the fundamentals of payment security. By using this link, the regular $495 cost will be waived.
Awareness starts with you. And it doesn’t stop with Data Privacy Day. Make it an everyday priority in 2016 by using these resources:
