5 Point Website Security Checklist for E-commerce Retailers (http://gplnk.co/2dyaXsH)

If you run a small e-commerce business, you may be tempted to skimp on security and assume that it is only necessary for large e-commerce brands. You may or may not realize it, but smaller companies have the same requirements when it comes to security and simply cannot cannot afford to overlook the threats that their electronic businesses face.

Here are some tips to help you secure your website, big or small.

Start from a safe, secure and redundant place.
That way, no matter what happens, your most important assets — your data — and the most valuable thing you own — your time — are not wasted if your computer malfunctions or your website is breached. Don’t sell yourself short. Set up a data backup solution — or use more than one — as soon as you can. Gain instant peace of mind and protect your e-commerce business assets.

Ensure that the payment processors you use are water-tight.
Being PCI compliant greatly reduces your exposure to potentially catastrophic incidents related to cardholder data being lost, stolen or abused. It also gives your e-commerce clients greater peace of mind when doing business with you.

Think of encryption as your friend.
Encryption is what allows us to send private information, like card data or client identifiers across the web without anyone else seeing it in transit while it’s being sent. Encryption should happen anytime details are being entered into a form (live chat, order forms, logging into a customer account, etc). More often than not — and it’s a bit worrisome really — most online retailers only encrypt data AFTER the login details have been entered. Using a SSL after user authentication is like locking the door but leaving the key hanging outside after you go in. So encrypt in front of the login too.

Protect against DDoS.
There are many tools and services out there to protect e-commerce businesses against DoS (Denial of Service) and DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. Foremost among them is the 800lb free tool, CloudFlare. Not using a DDoS protection is like going cage diving with Great White Sharks, but within being locked safely behind a steel cage. Not wise.

Use a Firewall.
Firewalls, whether utilizing hardware or software, work by allowing or disallowing traffic, based on what you’ve authorized. It’s something like a wall. It protects your business by blocking unauthorized traffic and possibly malicious internet traffic from accessing your network or system. There are number of different firewalls but the ones you should consider for your website are application gateways and proxy firewalls.
