The Company

With international offices, the company offers both businesses and consumers around the world innovative solutions for digital payments. Their cashless payments solution are customizable to any industry and business, which makes the company one of the fastest growing digital platforms in the fintech industry.

The Challenges

As one of the world’s fastest-growing digital platforms in the finance industry, PCI-DSS is one of the key compliance requirements. Due to their company growth, there was a need to replace the awareness campaigns driven by each of their local branches to a globally trackable and scalable training solution. 

Along with the company growth, it also became quite essential to target the PCI compliance to each one of the technology stack used by the development teams spread across the world, and to keep the training fun and engaging.

  

Solutions

 To achieve this certification, Avatao prepared a custom training program for the different target groups based on the languages the developers programmed with (Java, .Net, Python, C and C++ and an optional DevSecOps), that was in line with the PCI requirements. To give the team leaders a comprehensive overview of their teams progress throughout the 3-months initiative, the company was provided with the key metrics to track the training completion, and regularly sent internal reminders to complete the training on time.

Results

During 2019 and 2020, throughout multiple waves of training in 30 different regions, the company developers targeted by the PCI-DSS compliance successfully passed and received their certification from the Avatao training.
