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.

  • All your answers on one site: pcisecuritystandards.org/pci_security

  • 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 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! Oct 10, 2016 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. Oct 10, 2016 at 6:36
