Tested, Retested, and Tested Again: VENZA Learning Management System completes rigorous assessment by Clear Skies Security

(Alpharetta, GA – November 1, 2012) Through a rigorous series of technical tests, the Venza Learning Management System (LMS) earned the coveted determination of being a “low risk” technology. Conducted by the highly reputable firm Clear Skies Security (Clear Skies), the Application Security Assessment was designed to identify security issues in the application and put them in the context of the IT and business environment.
All application security controls and weaknesses of the Venza LMS were evaluated as a whole to clearly demonstrate potential impact on the site. This allowed the Venza Group to target tactical and strategic initiatives where the need was most acute. By subjecting the environment to such thorough testing, the Venza Group has demonstrated a strong commitment to understanding their true security posture and developing concrete risk mitigation strategies.

As leaders in the areas of compliance and performance for the hospitality/retail/travel industry, the complex security issues that companies face today is not lost on the Venza Group. This fact is evidenced by the three (3) role-specific PCI-DSS Compliance modules they’ve designed and developed in coordination with the law firm of Arnall, Golden, Gregory (AGG). These modules, in addition to the forthcoming Security Awareness module, are popular titles within the Venza Group’s PEAK™ Compliance and Performance Series of off-the-shelf courses.

Rick Belisle, Clear Skies Security’s COO & Co-Founder, described the results of the tests performed against the Venza Learning Management System, by saying, “Based off the final assessment results, after all retesting was completed, Clear Skies would rate Venza’s LMS application environment as Low Risk.”
