Webinar 4, PCI DSS: The Importance of Scope Reduction – Overview 


The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global information security standard for organisations (merchants or service providers) that covers any system components that store, process, or transmit cardholder data as well as connected systems and security systems. But this definition of scope is quite broad and can become confusing and complicated, meaning that many businesses either don’t know how to clearly define the scope or worse, define it incorrectly. 

In this 1-hour webinar, one of URM's QSAs will provide a comprehensive overview of the scope of applicability of the PCI DSS as well as giving some advice on how to determine what could be in or out of scope. There will also be some tips of how you can reduce the scope to help make compliance easier. The webinar will address the following key questions: 

  • What determines the scope of the PCI DSS? 
  • How do I define my scope?
  • Why should you reduce scope?
  • How do I reduce scope? 


This webinar is aimed at managers from both merchant and service provider organisations who are looking for a clear and concise explanation of the scope of the PCI DSS.
