A retailer’s web site provides access to a global audience of potential buyers. Sales success is dependent on the 24/7 availability of a well-presented site, able to cope with peaks in demand and securely transact the consumer’s personal and payment details.

Similarly, airlines and hotels are vying for business, with passengers and guests’ adept at surfing for the best online deal in this crowded space.

Certification against cybersecurity schemes such as the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standard are vital in reassuring consumers that your website is a safe place to shop.

And a regular program of penetration testing can significantly reduce the chances of your website and back-end operations being down at a critical trading period, or being hit by costly fines and the reputational damage associated with a data breach.
