2013-10-09 14:52:18 - Continues Commitment to Award-Winning Security Standards and Procedures
Dallas, Texas – October 9, 2013 – On-Line Strategies [OLS] is pleased to announce that systems and network security professional, Bill Soverns, has joined the company as Information Security Analyst. In this role, Mr. Soverns is responsible for PCI compliance, related audits, corporate security policies, procedures and ongoing employee adherence to strict executive-mandated standards, along with performing periodic vulnerability scans and addressing day-to-day problem resolution initiatives. In addition, Mr. Soverns helps assure OLS product PA-DSS compliance and regularly assists customers with their security requirements, issues and periodic audits.
“I heard about OLS through a highly-respected PCI assessment firm,” remarked Soverns. “They spoke so highly about the company’s extraordinary commitment to security and regulatory compliance, that I had to seek them out.
OLS employees live and breathe security from the top down, a refreshing, but very rare occurrence in many of today’s software companies that build, release and adopt applications now, and worry about security breaches, network vulnerabilities and impending audits later.”
“With the growth we’ve experienced, and increasing pressures on all of us to continue practicing tight security procedures, we were delighted to find someone with Bill’s knowledge and experience,” added David Bergert, OLS’ Chief Technology Officer. “Our business is highly regulated and specialized. His understanding of the financial industry and the intricacies of electronic payments and sophisticated payment switches was the perfect credential for us. The industry is very aware of our reputation for security, having won Secure Developer Awards two years in a row. Bill will help ensure we continue that tradition.”
