HOUSTON, Oct. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In support of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), Netsurion today announced free managed security services for three months to any merchant who signs a new contract during the month of October 2015. The offer extends to businesses with multiple locations. The goal of the promotion is to bring more merchants into compliance with PCI DSS 3.1 standards protecting credit card and other personally identifiable information of consumers. This year marks the fifth anniversary of the NCSAM campaign designed to engage, educate and raise awareness about cybersecurity.
"Cybercrime threatens businesses, personal identities and finances," said Aaron Branson, vice president of Marketing for Netsurion. "Our role in supporting this initiative is to provide merchants with the critical infrastructure protection for their businesses, while fulfilling our shared responsibility in creating a global culture of safety and trust."
Throughout the month, Netsurion executives will participate in a series of Twitter chats that reflect NCSAM's theme of shared responsibility in securing the Internet. Netsurion will also produce educational infographics to help inform merchants and consumers about a different topic in cybersecurity each week. These topics include cybersecurity at work, our evolving digital lives, helping communities stay protected and best practices for all digital citizens.
During October, Netsurion will also exhibit at the 2015 BURGER KING® North America and IHOP Restaurants conventions, providing on-site support to attendees who want to transition businesses to remotely managed security solutions and best security practices.
