I am a strong believer in group “live” training experiences where I am in a room with individuals who have different perspectives, challenges, and questions.  Unfortunately, the real world keeps spinning and constant training is not always possible, so the web (yes… that which gives and takes) has online training.  For those unaware there are several very good online free training seminars for PCI DSS.  In fact, the one I am highlighting is “sponsored” by MasterCard.

After free registration – the simplest I have yet to see, you are provided with a list of sessions to listen to or you can download the PDFs!  You can find nearly currently a dozen sessions here.  They cover the following topics:

  • Maximize Internal Preparation for PCI DSS New!, by Mathieu Gorge – CEO Vigitrust
  • Network Segmentation New!, Mark Lippman – Senior Partner, Arsenal Security Group
  • Data Encryption: Understanding Encryption and PCI DSS New!, by Gerard Onorato and Jeffrey Foresman
  • An Introduction to the PCI Security Standards Council, by Bob Russo – General Manager, PCI Security Standards Council
  • A Detailed Look at PCI DSS Requirements, by Andrew Henwood – Director of Operations, One-SEC/Trustwave
  • A look into the new Self Assessment Questionnaire, by Jennifer Mack – Vice President, MasterCard Worldwide
  • A Merchant’s Journey towards PCI Compliance, by Alexander Grant, General Manager British Airways
  • Understanding Account Data Compromise, by A. Bryan Sartin – Vice President Investigative Response, Verizon Business
  • Preparing for a Successful PCI Assessment, Lessons from the Field, by Michael Walter – Senior Partner, Arsenal Security Group
  • Reducing Your Risk: A Look Into PCI Vulnerability Scanning, by John Bartholomew – Vice President, Security Metrics
  • Security and the Payments Systems, By John Verdeschi – Vice President, MasterCard Worldwide and Jeremy King – Vice President, MasterCard Worldwide
  • Compliance Validation & Beyond, by Sally Ramadan – MasterCardWorldwide

I have gone through several thus far, and my comments on a few are as follows:

  • Maximize Internal Preparation – Helpful.  Core Message:  Setup a diverse team with senior management, and leverage your QSA’s experience
  • Understanding Account Data Compromise – Educational.  Great walk through!  Check out Michael Dahn’s excellent ongoing articles on the carder market

Check out the online webinars here.   I am sure there are many others, so please add them below in the comments to help everyone!
