The first two requirements of PCI DSS version 3.2.1 are to build and maintain secure networks and systems. You'll learn to understand what each requirement asks for and discover practical guidance from experienced PCI assessors.


The key to achieving PCI DSS compliance is a thorough knowledge of each of the sub-requirements and how they will be assessed. In this course, PCI DSS: Infrastructure Security, you’ll learn how to interpret PCI DSS requirements 1 and 2, and apply them to your organization. First, you’ll learn how PCI DSS wants a firewall configuration to be built and maintained to protect cardholder data. Next, you’ll explore the requirement to not use vendor-supplied defaults for systems passwords and other security parameters. Finally, you’ll discover practical insights about both requirements from experienced PCI assessors. When you’ve finished with this course you will have the skills and knowledge to apply PCI DSS requirements 1 and 2 to any organization’s environment and to determine whether it is compliant with the demands of the standard.
