How to Manage e-Commerce Risk in Today's Globally Connected World

October 5, 2009

In a recent interview with Loss Prevention Magazine, Ridge Global CEO Tom Ridge discusses e-commerce and how companies can mitigate data breaches and other risk scenarios in today’s highly internet-driven marketplace.

“We know e-commerce criminals operate globally and work together sharing information about on-line weaknesses and vulnerabilities,” said Secretary Ridge. “If they succeed, they compromise the viability of businesses and jobs. That creates a dangerous world, but that does not mean we can or should withdraw from it.

“On the contrary, America‚Äôs future security and prosperity is now and forever more tied with the security and the prosperity of the rest of the world.”

The Loss Prevention feature includes excerpts of Secretary Ridge’s remarks at an e-commerce conference earlier this year as well as a recent Q&A on some of the more pressing cyber security issues facing retailers. To read the full interview, click here.
