Foregenix Launches PCI DSS Training Service

Foregenix will offer a variety of courses aimed at both technical and non-technical members of staff

LONDON, 10th January 2011 – Digital forensics and incident response specialists, Foregenix today announced the launch of its independent information security training courses aimed at helping businesses to become PCI DSS compliant.

Beginning in January 2011, Foregenix will offer a variety of courses aimed at both technical and non-technical members of staff. The company will offer a one day overview course on PCI DSS for non-technical staff to gain a better understanding of what PCI DSS compliance is and what makes a successful compliance programme. In addition, Foregenix will offer longer, customised, more in-depth assessment training and planning workshops aimed at PCI DSS and technical administrators.

Industry expert, Philip Whittaker, will head up the training services division. Philip brings more than 10 years experience in PCI DSS compliance and training to Foregenix. He specialises in large compliance projects involving acquiring banks, payment service providers and retail organisations and most recently worked as a PCI DSS subject matter expert within a FTSE 100 company.

“Foregenix is committed to helping business comply with PCI DSS regulations, but we understand that the process can be complicated and cumbersome,” said Benj Hosack, director at Foregenix. “Philip’s appointment has enabled us to develop a dedicated programme of training services that will help organisations to understand and manage their PCI DSS compliance and feel confident that their customer data is secure.”

“I’m delighted to be joining Foregenix and building upon my experience with training and assisting companies through PCI DSS compliance”, adds Philip Whittaker. “Our training services will enable clients to take control of their own long-term compliance strategies by building the knowledge-base within their teams.”
