Security Awareness Education

Your staff handles sensitive data as a part of their everyday routine, and ensuring they understand the security risks relevant to their duties is imperative. By educating your employees, suppliers, partners and customers, you reduce the chances that your organization will become a victim of today’s data security threats, as well as ensure they can properly handle an incident should one occur.

In addition, a number of industry and regulatory compliance initiatives require organizations to institute a formal security awareness program for employees. Trustwave’s Security Awareness Education (SAE) program meets the requirements of all common compliance regimes by delivering up-to-date training that targets the right audience with the right content.

And, because it often takes one to know one – TOTKO, Trustwave’s SAE program is backed by the expertise of Trustwave’s ethical hackers, who know how the bad guys operate – and how to shut them down. Learn more about our SAE solution.

The PCI DSS is a framework for the secure handling of cardholder data.

For large merchants, Trustwave offers unmatched resources and experience in guiding you through the process of PCI DSS compliance – from initial scheduling of your review to final preparation of documentation. For Level 4 merchants, we offer a tailored approach that provides an automated, Web-based validation process to help merchants become compliant and maintain their compliance with PCI DSS. Since PCI started in 2002, Trustwave has helped thousands of Level 1,2 and 3 merchants and hundreds of thousands of Level 4 merchants enroll and achieve PCI DSS compliance.
