Even The Very Best Are Vulnerable

Came across this notification from Network Solutions this morning pointing to the fact that even the very best ecommerce providers in the industry are vulnerable to criminal activities compromising Network Solutions ecommerce hosting customers. I respect their forensic and remediation efforts, but its time to rethink the paradigm and reinvent ecommerce.

How does an industry sort through fault and remedy the consumers that will eventually be hurt by overall process design that exposes private credit card and personal information? Every day another consumer’s credit is ruined and identity compromised. The source of this type of consumer injury can be months away from the actual impact and never actually be revealed.

I happened to accidently come across this notification from Network Solutions, a company I’ve used for years. I did not receive any proactive notification from them. However, I certainly didn’t miss my daily marketing email from them.
