Businesses need to develop a security plan to protect data

Businesses need to develop a security plan to protect data

Ecommerce is an important way of making money for many businesses, however, it is important to ensure that a security plan is developed to make sure that sensitive personal information and data does not end up in the wrong hands.

Consumers see the internet as a vital tool, and organisations need to make sure that they remain loyal by being a safe place to carry out transactions.

When a customer turns to ecommerce, they will be entering in their name, address and card details, which a business will then need to store in a secure database to prevent e-criminals from gaining access to this information.

According to Tony Neate, chief executive of Get Safe Online, consumers should check that they are using websites which protect information at all stages of the buying process.

Businesses need to react to this and put safeguards in place, and not just when it comes the time when credit cards details are entered.
