eCommerce Risk assessments

eCommerce Risk assessments can identify risks around your eCommerce processes before they can be exploited. eCom sites are in the front-line for global attacks and are often vulnerable to determined attackers. This service will accurately profile the current level of IT risk exposure for the business and the brand and provide recommendations to reduce risk.

  • Assess IT risk of an eCom platform to the business
  • Identify any regulatory or compliance issues
  • Identify opportunities to reduce IT risk and address compliance issues

Attackers focus on eCom sites because, historically, they’ve been easy prey and the attacks easy to monetise. Weak infrastructure controls, inadequate patching and poor awareness of what is ‘risky’ from an IT point of view have facilitated many attacks.

With many years of experience of evaluating eCom site security though eCommerce risk assessments, penetration testing and prioritising remediation activities, Prism Infosec is ideally placed to offer this short and competitively priced eCom Risk Assessment Service.

The Service is designed to be delivered in less than a week, with an on-site visit to discuss with the eCom teams or third parties:

  • Platform/technologies is use (hosting, network and software)
  • Effective management of any third parties
  • Resilience of eCom platform
  • Sensitive data stored, processed or transmitted, compliance obligations
  • eCom code and content development, testing and deployment
  • Logging/monitoring, testing and assurance

The main deliverable is a short report highlighting areas of IT risk identified and prioritised and pragmatic recommendations for reducing this risk.

A further optional on-site presentation of the key findings and recommendations can also be provided, if required, which can facilitate interactive discussion of key points with internal teams.

No, it’s not a formal Risk Assessment which evaluates risk against an organisations risk appetite (although a formal RA can be offered if that’s preferable). This assessment is focused more on identifying residual risk in an eCom business.

This service is a more holistic look at ‘the bigger picture’ and not just a physical test. Practical vulnerabilities can be found in people, process and procedures as easily as software and are often not identified until they are exploited.
