Protecting confidential information and keeping our systems secure are the twin pillars of information security at LocalIntel

Protecting confidential information and keeping our systems secure are the twin pillars of information security at LocalIntel. We implement physical and logical controls designed to secure our customers’ data as well as our own, and we encourage our customers to take similar, appropriate measures within their own environments to protect their own customers’ and partners’ data as well as the continuity of their business operations.

Over the past several days, there has been significant press coverage about Amazon seller accounts being compromised and the related impact on sellers and consumers. To help our customers understand precautions they should be considering, we’ve assembled a brief collection of resources available from Amazon that deal with security, privacy and provide information on how to report security concerns with Amazon’s platform. We encourage all Amazon third-party sellers to review these resources and discuss them with their internal or external security professionals.

Please note that some of the most effective precautions are also very simple to implement. For example, taking advantage of email notifications and other monitoring features within the Amazon platform to identify and respond to suspicious activity more quickly is a crucial first step in limiting risk and exposure. Inaction and failure to monitor can mean the difference between a small, contained problem and a major calamity that seriously affects a company’s business.
