Session Title: How Security Builds Trust in Frictionless Commerce
With store closings during the COVID-19 pandemic, many retailers, restaurants, and service providers are conducting business primarily (or even entirely) online. Many companies have launched eCommerce for the first time ever, and continue to rely on their sites to stay afloat. This digital shift means that it’s essential for businesses—particularly those who are new to eCommerce—to pay close attention to security. But with so much at stake, what’s the best approach?
Pivotree Sr. Director of Cybersecurity Todd Edwards will present on how to take the right steps to protect your business during the new era of cybercrime and customer data privacy regulations. He’ll discuss how current trends (like cloud-based services) will transform the practice of data protection into identity and access management, behavioral analytics, and security orchestration. Todd will also show how to support a frictionless trust framework for quality assurance, compliance, and real-time vulnerability and privacy mitigation.
