Data Security Through Hardware-Based Encryption

As new technologies emerge, so do new cybercrime attack vectors. Data encryption and security is increasingly important for enterprises of all sizes. Given the value of Customer Payment Data to the criminal world, it is especially targeted. Sensitive data such as financial information, e-mails, PINs, electronic medical records, social security numbers, and payment transactions must be protected. The payment ecosystem contains some of the most complex and vulnerable processes that we have today. It involves many institutions with technology stacks that are processing and potentially storing highly sensitive data, making it a prime target for sophisticated attacks. All stakeholders are working together to provide a security solution that protects customer information because this entire system is only as strong as its weakest link, being its employees and the underlying technology protecting it. At the heart of this payment processing security landscape sits a Hardware Security Module (HSM). Most likely [...]

How to Stay Better Protected Against Payment Security Hacks

A breach is expensive. Averages suggest the cost represents 10% of your annual revenue with the average reported breach now costing US$1.6m (source: Radware) and rising fast. Add to this any regulatory fines, lost time, brand impact, lost customers and headache. The impact can run from a week to a couple of months, event dependent. Your annual budget will be impacted, enterprises pay an average of US$200k to external parties to troubleshoot the crisis and your life in the boardroom will be forever changed. A lack of visibility will no longer be tolerated as an acceptable response. Both the UK National Cyber Security Centre and World Economic Forum forecast 74% of businesses can expect a hack this year. Not surprising when 150 criminal groups are known to be making more than US$100,000 per week from their illicit operations (source: Checkpoint). To avoid your chance of ending up in this situation, [...]
