Company challenges businesses to take on active role in securing consumer information
E-Complish, a leading payment solutions provider, is calling 2014 the “Year of the Data Breach” after a record 43% of American companies reported experiencing hacks since the start of the first-quarter, according to a study released by the Ponemon Institute. E-Complish is advocating for businesses to take a more active role in protecting their customers’ data integrity through the upcoming holiday shopping season and beyond.
With reports estimating that big box stores will see major sales gains during the fourth-quarter over the previous year. It should be obvious that information hackers are getting smarter, more devious and their skills should be seriously respected. It is key that companies become more humble and enact the necessary security precautions to restore and maintain consumer confidence, as well as prepare for potentially dangerous information breaches. The feeling of false security and “it will never happen to us” mentality of American companies needs to end.
“In a year where data hacks unfortunately have turned into the norm, it’s become increasingly clear that both businesses and individual consumers need the right tools and knowledge to protect their information,” said Stephen Price, CEO of E-Complish. “To combat these all-too-common breaches, we’re challenging businesses to ‘double down’ now and revisit their security protocols, overall PCI Compliance and invest in a payment processing system that truly works and protects. With the highest respect of hacker ingenuity we can say that after 16 consecutive breach-free years, we feel that the E-Complish product suite is poised to lead the way while combating fraud for years to come.”
E-Complish offers a full range of solutions designed to improve the speed and performance of payment processing, fraud protection, and e-commerce transactions, while providing its consumers the satisfaction of knowing their information is safe.
