I have done ISO 27001 implementation and auditin. I want to get a clear idea of PCIDSS standard.

  • What is PCI DSS (I know the abbreviation)
  • What are all the materials and sites to refer?
  • What are all the standard documents to refer?
  • What are the professional certifications that can be achieved through PCI DSS for an individual?

Kindly help me with those points.

  • Welcome to Security.StackExchange. We expect that before you ask a question you do some research on your own and/or telling us what research you have done. That way, we don't end up telling you what you already know, or we don't become your replacement for Google or a Wikipedia search. – schroeder Oct 10 '16 at 6:28
  • @schroeder thank u for the info! I wanted to move in a real-time manner by interacting with someone who has got hands on experience in implementing the thing! – sujansuresh Oct 10 '16 at 6:34
  • @schroeder I agree with that point. I myself is a LA in ISO27k :-) I know little about PCI DSS. I just wanna get deeper and know the skeleton. – sujansuresh Oct 10 '16 at 6:36
  • It's all on their site. – schroeder Oct 10 '16 at 6:40

You can download the PCI DSS Standard here. This is the official site and the only one you should be referring to.
