What is a PCI Professional?

‘The Payment Card Industry Professional is an individual, entry-level qualification in payment security information. This provides you with the tools to help your organization build a secure payment environment.’ We have a more in depth understanding of our merchants pci scope and can identify and assess their requirements. Becoming a PCIP demonstrates a level of understanding that can provide a strong foundation for a career in the payments security industry. This renewable career qualification is not affected by changes in employment assignments and stays in effect as long as the individual continues to meet requirements. This three-year credential also provides a great foundation for other PCI qualifications.

PCIP training is provided by the PCISSC and Sam is now listed on the PCISSC website as a PCIP. This qualification has given the necessary enhanced knowledge and understanding of the requirements to profile, assess and validate merchant’s compliance. Sam said ‘Having been with nexpay for a year, I can only express gratitude for the time and training nexpay have invested in me. The training was not easy, at all, but I am happy I can now help and support our customers in preventing fraud in their business and, most importantly, protecting our customers’.

As an expert source of knowledge, we can now offer guidance throughout the year as well as monitor changes to the standard and ensure our customers remain complaint.
Nexpay also manage for customers who do not have their merchant accounts already with us. We believe ensuring everyone is aware of the standard and understands the ‘jargon’ is of the utmost importance. By completing the IT Governance PCI training and the PCIP Qualification we have the evidence to back up our skills.

The requirements are often timely just to read through and understand, let alone to then complete and implement in the business – Let us take care of the hassle for you.
