"Companies across the globe are on high alert as breaches become more and more prevalent due to the competitive nature between hackers and their ability to capture and hijack data, resulting in high, easy payouts from ransomware. Now, more than ever, these organizations are looking to professionals to ensure their systems are safe and their customers are protected," says Ron Tosto, founder and CEO, Servadus. "As a QSA company, Servadus is able to guide clients in the right direction, ensuring they are following the best practices when it comes to securing electronic payments, and securing the trust of their customers."
