CPISI – Certified Payment Industry Security Implementer

Adopt a forensics-driven learning approach for better data security and compliance

We help you ensure a robust security posture

In today’s evolving payments landscape, most of the organizations are failing to maintain their security compliance due to poorly trained or untrained employees for securing the critical data

As per SISA's 2020

From the recent PFI investigations, SISA has observed 38% of the organizations were compliant at the time of the breach. On further analysis, we found two root causes for most of the data breach.

We help you make security a priority

44.1% of the respondents, from the breached organization, agreed that the poorly trained or untrained employees as the major cause while 18.56% of the respondents agreed that the lack of technical safeguards and the security processes as a core reason.

Being a pioneer in payment security excellence, SISA has curated CPISI, a Certified Payment Industry Security Implementer workshop, to scale with the data security standards and incorporate learnings from data breaches as PCI Forensic Investigator for more than a decade.

CPISI is a comprehensive program designed to impart knowledge on the policies and procedures of PCI implementation.

The 2-day workshop helps to bridge the gap in the awareness of organizations towards implementing effective PCI security controls and ease the PCI DSS compliance journey.
