Hacker safe mark

Date: April 03, 2006

The Edgewise Media Website, a supplier of blank media and accessories to the TV and movie industries is now tested and certified daily to pass the FBI/SANS Internet Security Test.

The "live" HACKER SAFE mark appears only when a web site's security meets the highest security scanning standards of the U.S. government, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB.

A spokesman for the company said, "these days many people are concerned about providing their card details online. We recognise the challenge and have invested heavily in our systems to ensure that all information provided by our customers remains safe and secure."

Research conducted at the federally funded research and development center operated by Carnegie Mellon University indicates that sites free of all known vulnerabilities that can be remotely scanned for, such as those earning HACKER SAFE certification, will prevent over 99.99% of hacker crime.

The Hacker Safe system used by Edgewise Media helps prevent identity theft and credit card fraud - two of the most common problems online.
