E-commerce providers operate in an exposed environment where consumer trust in card-not-present transactions is vital. Security therefore is key. Many data compromises are related to poor development, configuration and implementation of web based applications.
Even when systems have been designed and developed with security considered at every stage the threat landscape is ever changing and technology environments are rarely static.Hardware and software system changes, patches, upgrades or improvements can sometimes introduce unforeseen vulnerabilities or leave sensitive information exposed to compromise. Continuos monitoring and review of web site and web application security is absolutly necessary throughout the operational lifetime.
Sysnet have amassed a significant amount of experience assisting merchants, solution vendors and service providers with achieving compliance with the PCI DSS. Prior to the existence of the PCI DSS, e-commerce security reviews and e-risk security assessments (cyber risk assessments) were are an integral part of Sysnet’s business. We have significant experience with the concept of considering security as part of the systems development life cycle but also the need to maintain security controls and continue testing after a web site or web application has been deployed.
Sysnet’s e-commerce PCI DSS services focus on:
· Security considerations throughout the design, development, testing and deployment processes
· Proper change management and segregation of duties
· Regular testing, scanning and penetration testing
· Appropriate data retention strategies
· Rapid responses to security incidents
