Jersey City, NJ, October 22, 2009 - Small businesses may not keep close tabs on customer information, putting both themselves at risk for fines and their customers at risk for identity theft—and data thieves know it. Now Comodo offers a free webinar for businesses to learn more about how to protect themselves and their customers from data theft. To help guard against the theft of this sensitive data, Comodo is offering a limited time 20% discount on Comodo's PCI Scanning services.
"(T)he SMBs, the small and medium businesses, they don't have the talent or the budget or the experience, so those poor companies are at a disadvantage in this kind of world..." said Jeff Moss, a former hacker recently sworn in to the Homeland Security Advisory Council, in an interview with Elinor Mills of CNET News. "You still need a certain amount of high-end talent if you want to be secure."
With Comodo, small and medium businesses can align themselves with a world-class security expertise. The PCI DSS require businesses to follow basic security practices, including scanning their computer networks regularly to be sure that they are protected against hackers.
Comodo, a PCI-approved scanning vendor, is offering two webinars about the basics of PCI DSS compliance on November 3 and November 5, both at 3 p.m. EST. Comodo now provides PCI scanning services to nearly 200,000 businesses, entitling those businesses to accept payment cards.
Webinar attendees may receive Comodo's HackerGuardian PCI services at a 20% discount if purchased within 30 days of the webinar.
