IT Governance urges organizations to be aware of cyber risks on Cyber Monday and Black Friday


IT Governance, the leading expert in cybersecurity and ISO 27001 solutions, is urging organizations to be aware of the risks cyber crime presents as Cyber Monday and Black Friday approach.
This comes ahead of one the most active periods of the year for the retail sector, when online sales are at their peak and cyber criminals are ready to take advantage of organizations that lack security safeguards.   
Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “We urge organizations with online retail activity to take preventive security measures. Cyber Monday and Black Friday expose retailers to cyber crime more than any other period of the year.
“Security professionals need to take cyber threats like point-of-sale (POS) malware, fraud and new mobile payment technology seriously, and should respond to the challenges by conducting penetration testing to identify and fix any potential vulnerabilities,” Alan Calder continued.
To respond to the ongoing and evolving cyber threats, IT Governance helps organizations protect their valuable information and prevent cyber attacks by conducting CREST-accredited penetration tests. Organizations can opt for an Infrastructure (Network) Penetration test, Web Application Penetration Test, or a combination of both.
The Infrastructure (Network) Penetration Test is an across-the-board solution to effectively test IT network infrastructure. The service encompasses a careful scoping of the environment, vulnerability scans, a detailed technical report on the vulnerabilities identified, proposals for countermeasures, and an executive summary that describes the risks in organizational terms.
Additionally, IT Governance’s Web Application Penetration Test can help organizations identify potential vulnerabilities in web applications and websites, facilitating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and ISO 27001, the international best-practice standard for information security.
Each penetration test is led by IT Governance’s penetration testers, who combine a number of advanced manual tests with automated vulnerability scans to ensure every facet of the network infrastructure or web application is tested.
Organizations interested in undergoing both penetration tests can take advantage of IT Governance’s 10% discount on the Combined Infrastructure and Web Application Penetration test.
