/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in DPA and PCI Training, information, books and tools, has announced the launch of a DPA and PCI Foundation Combination Course in December. This is a unique offer, available only in December, which allows organisations to take both compliance challenges together whilst saving over £300 and optimising travel expenses: www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3700.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “In the UK all organisations must comply with the Data Protection Act (DPA), and every organisation that stores, transmits or processes card holder data must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). These two compliance issues cannot be ignored and I strongly advise organisations to ensure that the staff responsible for compliance receives formal training. Failure to comply with any of the above standards can result in heavy fines and reputation damage.”

The DPA and PCI Foundation Combination Offer is a two day course, comprising of the DPA Foundation Course on the first day and the PCI Foundation course on the second day (www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3700). Both sessions combine a mixture of theory and group workshop sessions to examine the DPA legislation and the PCI DSS requirements. They also explore methods of complying with the DPA and meeting the PCI requirements whilst supporting business objectives.

Delegates who take the combination course will be able to review and understand the current processes of handling personal data and ensure that these processes are in line with the latest Data Protection Act and PCI DSS compliance requirements. The workshop discussions and planned exercises during the course will help delegates to apply what they have learnt in their own work environments.

Organisations can book delegates onto the DPA and PCI Foundation Combination Course online here www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3700. They can make bookings directly with the friendly, helpful IT Governance service centre team on telephone number +44 (0)845 070 1750. Larger organisations can make bookings or purchases with a Purchase Order either by telephone or by email to [email protected]
