Protect Your E-Commerce Site

As hackers grow more experienced, a number of ecommerce sites have come under attack. It's never good thing when any site is attacked, but it's even worse when it's a site that solely exists for the sake of your business. After all, if your site goes down, you lose site traffic, and that means a loss in revenue. So, what can you do? Follow these ecommerce safety tips.   ecommerce Protect Your E-Commerce Site

1. Go deep. Ask your IT team to create multiple security layers. If you can, try to set up multiple security teams too, and it never hurts to hire a hacker or two to search for holes.

2. Make sure to update. Updates seem like such a pain, don't they? But, an update can really save you when it comes to most types of hacks. Be vigilant when it comes to updating software and keeping things in check. Even though it will take a few minutes to update a site now, it will save you a lot of hassle in the future.

3. Cyber insurance. We will talk more about cyber insurance in an additional article posted on the site today, but this might be something that you will want to look into.

4. Try to segregate your sites. Keeping all of your sites hosted on the same server could mean setting yourself up for disaster. If one site is attacked, all the other sites on that server might be attacked too.

5. Encryption. At all times, when possible, encrypt your data. There are so many people out there that have been hired simply to tap into your data. If you encrypt what you have created, this information will be a lot harder to track down.

6. Make it your job. If you are a website administrator or owner, don't wait for someone else to set these security measures in place. If everyone that works with a site aims to protect that site against hacks, the more chances you have of really setting up a great defense. When it comes to protecting your site, don't wait!
