Chris Olson, CEO at The Media Trust:

Chris Olson“Securing an enterprise’s website is an often overlooked aspect of IT, and the complexities of which are almost always underestimated. Typically, businesses only monitor their own code, yet most consumer-facing sites adopt plug-ins and other third party content services–video or image hosting, social widgets, analytics, data management platforms, payment processing, etc.–whose code execution is not readily visible to IT and, therefore, outside of their control. Compounding the issue, many websites leverage open source code which can easily be compromised via extension corruption or the use of a flawed version.The bigger issue is getting a handle on exactly which vendors contribute code to the rendering website content. Adding a digital layer to vendor risk management programs are especially valuable for ecommerce, finance, travel and media sites, where vendor-related anomalies directly impact revenue, brand reputation and customer data privacy regulations.”
