Vanta offers PCI DSS training developed by our in-house team of security, privacy, and compliance experts to help ensure your employees learn about important and required PCI DSS principles in a way that nurtures a positive and strong culture of security and privacy.


Vanta’s PCI DSS training is housed directly within the Vanta platform—which means your employees can view and complete the videos without leaving the Vanta onboarding page! Employees will see the training video on their onboarding page and will need to watch the video in its entirety. Once watched and submitted, it automatically marks the task as complete.
