Keeping Your Network Safe

Internet security is one tough nut to crack. With the majority of ticket sales happening online, business owners need to stay on top of security measures to keep their network safe from hackers.

"Scams have gotten a lot more sophisticated over the last couple years. It’s getting harder and harder for even tech people to tell what’s legit and what’s not," said IT Manager for TicketNetwork, Steve Boyle.

Credit card transactions and the personal information taken when customers place orders are the tastiest of morsels for those trying to breach a company’s security.
