Data Breach Liabilities - PCI Penalties, GDPR and a Warranty

27/03/19 14:19

Data breaches seem to be a regular feature in the news nowadays, especially since GDPR regulation kicked in last year. This higher frequency of articles announcing newly-hacked-victim-organisations gives an idea of the growing scale of the security problem - a trend that we have been talking and warning about for years.

Organisations particularly at risk of compromise are online businesses - eCommerce websites. In fact eCommerce websites are currently the most targeted type of organisation within the Payment Card Industry - simply because the crime is so much easier to execute. The reward for criminals is not as high as targeting a bank, but the crime is a lot easier to pull and scale too.

Magento Websites: How is the security health of your website?

10/07/17 16:40
Cyber security is a hot topic, with articles appearing most days within the mainstream media.   As consumers, we’re all becoming more cyber-aware as we see the latest well-known brand in the headlines for having lost their client data.

Most of us will have been affected by a credit card breach within the last few years - I can’t imagine there could be many people in first world countries who have not had their credit / debit card details stolen and received a replacement card from their bank. It's a major hassle - stressful and a huge waste of time.
