In order to reduce risks associated with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), any department or organization at the University of Tennessee or the University of Tennessee Foundation with a Merchant ID for credit card processing must now take part in PCI security training. This is a part of the University’s formal PCI security awareness program required by PCI DSS, as well as UT policy FI0311 – Credit Card Processing.

Handouts, slides, and links to other resources can be found below.
