LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Conformance Technologies, a fast-growing provider of operating systems, education systems and expertise used in managing business compliance requirements, today announced the launch of its Cyber Attack Readiness ToolKit™ solution. This newest ToolKit offering, running on the Conformance Compliance Operating System™, helps merchants easily and cost-effectively perform penetration testing (often referred to as pen-testing) and Primary Account Number (PAN) scanning to meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 3.0 requirements.
“A CyberEdge report states that 71 percent of businesses report falling victim to a cybercrime each year, and the National Cyber Security Alliance says that 60 percent of small businesses go out of business within six months of such an attack,” cites Darrel Anderson, president of Conformance Technologies. “So when a breach or hack occurs, there’s a good chance these businesses are finished,” states Anderson. “That’s why putting the Cyber Attack Readiness ToolKit to work is important, not only for these businesses, but for merchant portfolio operators as well,” continues Anderson.
PCI DSS requirement 11.3 calls for e-commerce merchants and some brick-and-mortar merchants as well, to regularly perform pen-testing of their computer systems. PAN scanning is typically performed to identify insecure storage of credit card information and track data. The Cyber Attack Readiness ToolKit from Conformance Technologies takes a best-practice approach, combining both pen-testing and PAN scanning, to help merchants ensure compliance with PCI DSS while protecting cardholder data security.
The Cyber Attack Readiness ToolKit safely and easily simulates real-world attacks against merchant computer systems. Professional security engineers manually test systems to identify vulnerabilities and risks which may impact the confidentiality, integrity or availability of data. A hands-on approach enables security testers to intelligently respond to changing environmental conditions to discover new routes and system loopholes ripe for attack. As a result, merchants understand how malicious entities potentially may attack their systems and the extent of their vulnerability so that proactive measures may be taken to strengthen system security.
To learn more about how the Cyber Attack Readiness ToolKit from Conformance Technologies can benefit you and your portfolio of merchant customers, or to schedule an onsite meeting during the TRANSACT 15 conference in San Francisco, held March 31–April 2, 2015, please telephone 775.336.5533 or email email@example.com.
