FishNet Security Accredited by Visa as a Qualified Incident Response Assessor (QIRA)

Payment Card Processors Can Rely on FishNet Security to Provide Assurance That Security and Compliance Have Been Restored Following a Payment Card Data Breach

KANSAS CITY, MO -- (Marketwire) -- 07/21/09 -- FishNet Security, the nation's largest and most respected security solutions provider, today announced that it has been accredited by Visa as a Qualified Incident Response Assessor (QIRA) to perform forensic investigations and oversee remediation efforts following a payment card data compromise. Visa started the QIRA program to better equip clients, merchants and agents in mitigating the threat of a network intrusion and data compromise by ensuring quick and thorough remediation of compromised card-processing computing systems. As a member of Visa's elite QIRA program, FishNet Security is available to respond immediately when payment card data breaches occur, investigate the incidents onsite, oversee remediation procedures, and then provide final assurance to Visa that compromised systems have been secured and brought back into compliance.

"Being named to the Visa QIRA program validates that FishNet Security is among the best of the best when it comes to managing and remediating payment card data security breaches," said Gary Fish, FishNet Security founder & CEO. "In order to be named as a professional services firm in this highly competitive program, our team went through Visa's rigorous accreditation process and was able to demonstrate our knowledge and expertise at performing all aspects of a PCI forensic investigation."

Visa requires merchants to contact a QIRA immediately when they experience a payment card data breach. During the chaos of a breach, IT security personnel need to be assured that the QIRA team they call will immediately become trusted team members, listen to their concerns, assess risk and deliver high-value results that will restore security and compliance to their card processing systems.

"Our consultants have worked with hundreds of merchants and card processors to develop and validate policy, process, procedures, and controls that comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). We not only understand the PCI standards, we understand what our customers are going through," said Mark Carney, FishNet Security managing director of strategic services. "This experience and knowledge allows us to represent the best interests of all parties involved by helping a customer restore security, compliance and order so that they can remain in good standing with Visa and keep incident related costs to a minimum."

FishNet Security's QIRA consulting team is available 24 hours a day, seven days per week. To contact one of FishNet Security's QIRA team members, call 888-732-9407 or email [email protected].

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
