Advanced Hospitality Technologies Inc. has been part of the U.S. hotel industry for over 20 years. Ever since offering our first “PCI compliance & cybersecurity best practices” course, we have aimed to enhance hoteliers’ learning and understanding about modern technology threats.
Our highly experienced trainers are authorized by both the PCI Council and certified by the HFTP (Hospitality Association for Financial & Tech Professionals). Our aim is to nurture an environment of robust cybersecurity and information security policies that readily secure hotel technology assets and sensitive guest data.
The Aim of ADVHTech Inc.’s PCI Compliance Training
Primarily our PCI compliance & cybersecurity training modules help hoteliers, especially payment processing staff & front desk officers, understand the significance of cyber breaches and hacks.
Understanding PCI DSS Standards
Our expert trainers clearly outline the cost of carrying non-compliant legacy technologies and the resulting repercussions. Our course aims to familiarize hotel staff with:
- The purpose and history of PCI DSS
- The 12 PCI Council standards/requirements relevant to the front desk.
- Your responsibility for following those standards
- The steps necessary to protect cardholder information from potential breaches
- How to help reduce credit card fraud and identity theft for guests
Responsibility & Accountability
Our secondary aim to dispense this training to hotel staff is to teach them their responsibility and accountability when handling sensitive guest data. The PCI Council established that “every hotel employee who accepts, processes and stores cardholder data is responsible for following the PCI Data Security Standards”.
Our leading-edge PCI training modules educate front desk agents letting them embrace their accountability for protecting guests’ sensitive card information from being stolen during a security breach.
Cybersecurity experts & professionals already emphasize the importance of encrypted communications. Our leading-edge training modules educate your staff to breed a culture of security through secure communication & data processing.
