To continue on my theme of a good E-Commerce practices, the next topic is security. I will never admit to be a full blown security expert, but I feel comfortable enough to point out some key items to have in place for an E-Commerce site.
To continue on my theme of a good E-Commerce practices, the next topic is security. I will never admit to be a full blown security expert, but I feel comfortable enough to point out some key items to have in place for an E-Commerce site. These include storing sensitive information in an encrypted fashion, managing access to the sensitive information and physical security. From a marketing perspective making the experience a comfortable one for the visitor can also be very important.
Encrypting sensitive data, like credit card or social security numbers, is mandatory. This needs to be done in transmission and storage. While I often do not recommend clients store their customer's credit card information in the site's database some want or need to do so. When this is done all information should be stored in an encrypted format with one of the common encryption algorithms.
I am not going to get into the details of how these work, but there are two common methodologies that are used. The first actually stores the value in an encrypted state in the database and is decrypted anytime it is used in the site. The second does not store the actual data, but the Hash of the data. This hash is then used each time the client submits the data to the site for comparison purposes only. This protects the store from potential liability if the data is compromised.
