The 7 secrets for E commerce data protection





E-commerce trading has changed the tradition of shopping. Things have changed tremendously from the introduction of online shopping. Logging in, surfing & searching, placing the order, making the payment, and receiving the product- that is truly a cakewalk for all of us without being taught. But on the other end i.e. website, it becomes essential to assure the security owing to increased cyber break. With the extremely small loophole, a hacker can access the account and steal everything including customer data.

Just like the wolf bats an eye on the hen’s pen for leaping and tearing off some sumptuous meat, hackers keep their prying eyes on cyber sufferer. They are always hiding for snatching the information of their victim to steal every piece of information. The bank account details, e-wallet information, and credit or debit card details etc. Such problems are faced by common people and government websites. However, the same issue faced by e-commerce websites is grave. If online breaching is not dealt sternly, several shop owners are in danger to lose a lot of sensitive data. But, one cannot avoid this bullet conveniently.

Choose a Secure Platform:


E-commerce website design is dynamic and should run on a secure platform. A safe e-commerce platform is what to a strong foundation to a building. There are countless platforms out in the market that can assure security to your e-commerce website. Every platform has its safety characteristics. Moreover, it is mandatory to ensure that it remains operational 24/7 and creates a regular backup. This gives us the assurance about the security of the e-commerce website. Also, keep it secured with a password so that it cannot be obtained easily.

Collect Essential Data Only:
There’s no need for gathering additional data. Many e-commerce websites acquire information like date of birth for surveys and it is of no use. No customer would share any kind of private data apart from contact detail and email id. Imagine an e-commerce website gets breached by a hacker then customer’s data would be at stake. Instead of acquiring the sensitive data of the customer, prefer tokenization procedure compatible with the e-commerce website design. It is a process where random numerals or a combination of alpha-numerals is created instead of a customer’s data. With this, credit or debit fraud can be prevented as well.

HTTPS as a shield


It is seller’s responsibility to provide online security to all customers visiting his/her website. This is a turnkey solution that encrypts the data exchanged between a web server and a browser. With an EV SSL certification, the website gets a green padlock symbol in the address bar. Since it is an additional layer of security, the e-commerce website gets further trustworthiness.

Maintain a Backup Regularly:
The increasing website breaching practices are a threat to cybersecurity. To prevent this loophole, website designing companies in India and worldwide are adding different backup options to e-commerce website designs. Gone are those days when separate software had to be installed for maintaining a daily backup. In the current scenario, all businesses whether small scale or large scale, prefer cloud backup. This creates a forever history of all details somewhere on the internet that remains there forever.

Security Patches Should be updated Regularly:
Setting up a store and commencing the business, introducing new schemes, spinning profit, and repeating the same- if you think it is the complete loop for an e-commerce business then you’re wrong. It doesn’t end here. Since the e-commerce business is most vulnerable to cyber breaching, updating the security patches is essential to protect any sort of malware invasion. All e-commerce business owners who regularly update their security patches have rare chances of getting their sensitive data leaked as compared to those who don’t update the security wall. Moreover, strengthening the weak VPNs will prevent malware from invading the data.

Limited Access for Safety:
As per the statistics released by Google recently, most of the cyber breaching cases occur due to inner leaks. This has been increasing rapidly for the last 4-5 years at an alarming level. Therefore, it becomes essential to understand what data is accessible by which personnel. By setting different passwords and biometrics, one can prevent the data from leaking. In a nutshell, setting up access for vendors and customers should be done on individual panels that should be managed by the administrator panel.

Password Strength – Strong
People complain that they are not able to remember complex passwords. Silly characters, upper case, lower case, numerals, special characters etc., turn out to be obnoxious. But such passwords assure the security of an e-commerce website. People tend to oversee the benefits of complex passwords. Alphabetical passwords and numerical passwords are soft targets for hackers, whereas, passwords with special characters make hacking a hard nut to crack for all hackers.

Thus We Conclude:

The hard truth is that protection of your e-commerce website data and customer information isn’t a cakewalk. Cyber breaching is rising consistently and to avoid it, you can take the right call at your end. What you perused above were some proven practices that keep fraud, forgery, and malware invasion at bay. Implement over the aforementioned to stay secure and sell more.
