The Secure Software Assessor course provides instruction on how to perform assessments of payment software in accordance with the Secure Software Requirements and Assessment Procedures (PCI Secure Software Standard). This training will provide you with an understanding of the requirements with corresponding assessment procedures and guidance for the development of secure payment software.

Note: This class is available for certification or you may take this class for informational purposes. Informational training is for individuals who would like to increase their knowledge but do not necessarily need to achieve certification. This training is a great fit for any individual who may want to understand what the standard and program entail, what to expect from an assessment, but who does not need or want to certify as an assessor for that program.
