Network Security – Keep You Secure Online All The Time

PCI compliance

Payment card industry (PCI) compliance is adherence to a set of specific security standards that were developed to protect card information during and after a financial transaction. PCI compliance is required by all card brands.

There are six main requirements for PCI compliance. The vendor must:

  • Build and maintain a secure network
  • Protect cardholder data
  • Maintain a vulnerability management program
  • Implement strong access control measures
  • Regularly monitor and test networks
  • Maintain an information security policy
PCI compliance
HIPPA Compliance

HIPPA Compliance

HIPAA is an unusual law in that it makes a lot of recommendations (addressable items) and a few assertions (required items), but in the end it is up to each organization to determine for themselves what they need to do to be compliant. This creates a great deal of flexibility and also a great deal of uncertainty. In general, to be HIPAA-compliant, a web site must at a minimum ensure that all protected health information (ePHI):

  • Transport Encryption: Is always encrypted as it is transmitted over the Internet
  • Backup: Is never lost, i.e. should be backed up and can be recovered
  • Authorization: Is only accessible by authorized personnel using unique, audited access controls
  • Integrity: Is not tampered with or altered
  • Storage Encryption: Should be encrypted when it is being stored or archived
  • Disposal: Can be permanently disposed of when no longer needed
  • Omnibus/HITECH: Is located on the web servers of a company with whom you have a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (or it is hosted in house and those servers are properly secured per the HIPAA security rule requirements).

HIPAA Seal of Compliance

Web development

Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet (World Wide Web) or an intranet (a private network). Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, and social network services. A more comprehensive list of tasks to which web development commonly refers, may include web engineering, web design, web content development, client liaison, client-side/server-side scripting, web server and network security configuration, and e-commerce development. Among web professionals, “web development” usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building web sites: writing markup and coding. Most recently Web development has come to mean the creation of content management systems or CMS. These CMS can be made from scratch, proprietary or open source. In broad terms the CMS acts as middleware between the database and the user through the browser. A principle benefit of a CMS is that it allows non-technical people to make changes to their web site without having technical knowledge.

Virtual setup

Virtual Solutions Onsite DAS SAN NAS

Virtual machines allow you to run an operating system in a window on your desktop. Use them to run software made for other operating systems, experiment with different operating systems, and sandbox software.

There are several good free virtual machine programs, so setting up a virtual machine is easy. You’ll just need installation media for the operating system you want to install — this is free if you want to install Linux in a virtual machine, at least.

A virtual machine program is a computer program that creates a virtual computer system, complete with virtual hardware devices. This virtual computer “machine” runs as a process in a window on your current operating system. You can boot an operating system installer disc (or live CD) inside the virtual machine, and the operating system will be “tricked” into thinking it’s running on a real computer. It will install and run just as it would on a real, physical machine. Whenever you want to use the operating system, you can open the virtual machine program and use it in a window on your current desktop.
