Business Network Security

Business Network Security

Security in your IT systems (and in business generally) has become an integral, important, and ultimately necessary part in any plan for operations. Omnis can help you find the right products, perform audits and other services, and provide training to help stop information theft, minimize security compromises, and educate your workforce.

Understanding security requirements, like PCI DSS (which is a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing payment account data security dealing with accepting credit card payments online), identifying attacks, and responding and reducing risk – these are important tasks we can do to help your overall security level. We have multiple core competencies related to e-commerce and data security, and are available for consulting on system setup and design, code review, networking, and meeting requirements.



All merchants, whether small or large, need to be PCI compliant. The payment brands have collectively adopted PCI DSS as the requirement for organizations that process, store or transmit payment cardholder data. The core of the PCI DSS is a group of principles and accompanying requirements, around which the specific elements of the DSS are organized:

Build and Maintain Business Network Security

Requirement 1: Install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect cardholder data
Requirement 2: Do not use vendor-supplied defaults for system passwords and other security parameters

Protect Cardholder Data

Requirement 3: Protect stored cardholder data
Requirement 4: Encrypt transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks

Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program

Requirement 5: Use and regularly update anti-virus software
Requirement 6: Develop and maintain secure systems and applications

Implement Strong Access Control Measures

Requirement 7: Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know
Requirement 8: Assign a unique ID to each person with computer access
Requirement 9: Restrict physical access to cardholder data

Regularly Monitor and Test Networks

Requirement 10: Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data
Requirement 11: Regularly test security systems and processes

Maintain an Information Security Policy

Requirement 12: Maintain a policy that addresses information security

Requirements like PCI DSS are complex, and mean different things to different merchants.
