The amount of time between the identification of a vulnerability and the release of a patch exposes your website.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES ?


Unlike other non-commerce CMS’s, there are steep financial implications when a Magento-run online business gets hacked:

                  
  • Once your business loses customer trust, you will spend a lot of money and time trying to rebuild reputation.
  • Your customers could sue you, resulting in more financial losses.
  • Having your customer data uploaded to the public will damage your competitive advantage.
  • Your business can be charged heavy fines and incur steep transaction fees for violating PCI compliance and neglecting responsibilities.
  • Having to rebuild your website from scratch puts you out of business for days, even weeks. In the meantime, you lose business to competitors.

Defending your Magento store begins with ensuring security of the web servers and other hardware that runs the application. We will help you accomplish this by analyzing and vetting your current hardware configuration and reporting to you on the actual state of your physical infrastructure.

 
Physical infrastructure

Your OS and other applications on your computers and servers have to be constantly updated to the latest versions. Security patches for these applications have to be constantly brought up to date. Other security measures such as software firewalls and antimalware should also be made regularly.

 
Applications and Services installed on the OS (PHP, MySQL)

A multifaceted security approach is needed to protect all the sensitive company and customer information stored in your database. Among the security measures that will maintain the integrity of your shop include using SSL certificates, configuring web-access and database parameters, securing admin pathways, ensuring data encryption keys are installed, performing backups, using username and passwords that cannot be easily detected and installing security patches.

 
Database (Contains all the data related to your Magento)

New versions of Magento software are imbedded with security patches to protect against known vulnerabilities. It’s therefore crucial to perform regular software updates.

 
Magento (All the Magento base code)

Setting the right permissions will ensure read, write and execute rights for files and directories are only handled by the owner of the Magento system or an authorized web server user.

 
Configurations and file permissions

Third parties can create extensions to extend functionalities such as improving the web interface, allowing better integration of billing methods or to improve security. Trustworthiness of extensions should be taken seriously as they will have access to credit card numbers, transaction data, sales performance and stock information. To guarantee your system’s safety, we will vet all third party extensions to ensure your system is updated with the right patches for detecting malicious extensions before they do any damage.

 
Modules installed

Rewriting modules on Magento will adapt the system to suit your needs, but it might also cause security loopholes if done in the wrong way. If wrong modifications touch on core files, this might interfere with making future updates. To prevent such issues, we will provide our expertise to modify code as needed while ensuring your system is not left open to attacks.

Any website that handles people’s personal and financial information is an attractive target for cyber criminals. Hackers access financial information in order to sell credit card numbers, and this usually leads to a string of fraudulent transactions that cost individuals and merchants a lot of money. Even for websites that don’t receive credit card payments directly, malicious content can be designed to reroute customers to false websites, resulting in loss of business.

According to a 2014 report on cybercrime, there was a notable increase of 9.3%in the average cost of hacking per company in the US, from what was reported in the previous year. Other countries, such as Germany and Russia were also impacted, with both countries reporting cost increases. The report notes that small enterprises have not been spared either, and actually incurred heavier financial losses when compared with large organizations.

Additionally, the longer a cyber-attack goes unresolved, the higher the costs. On average, it took 45 days to resolve an attack in 2014 as compared to 32 days in 2013. The longer number of days resulted in a 33% increase in resolution costs.
A separate survey conducted by Symantec found that 5 out of 6 companies with a workforce of more than 2500 were attacked in 2014. However, though the number of attacks increased, the volume of malware deployed by hackers fell by 14%, which shows that hackers are perfecting their techniques when planning targeted attacks. As well, there were at least 1 million non-targeted malware released online daily.

The good news is, taking a strong approach to security governance continues to be an effective way of fighting cybercrime. Companies that have invested in cyber security have not been impacted by these costs but are instead seeing higher ROI and significant cost savings.
