Let your e-commerce provider be responsible for your cybersecurity
Just think about it...
- In 2019, 40% of global enterprise security decision makers said a breach happened by exploiting a software vulnerability, and 37% said it was through a web application. - (Forrester 2021 Predictions – Cybersecurity)
- If your firm is shifting to direct-to-consumer, prioritize product security, build a developer champions program, and explore breach and attack simulation tools. (Forrester 2021 Predictions – Cybersecurity)
- Depending on your e-commerce solution’s ownership (private vs cloud IaaS vs cloud SaaS), the provider’s responsibility for the security of your tools and data can vary from very low (public cloud-hosted IaaS) to considerable (cloud SaaS). But tenants can’t ever fully count on their provider, and you must take responsibility for certain security aspects yourself.
