The cybercrime is always a nice topic to discuss in these modern days. Since it’s getting worse and we need to pay a lot of our attention to it. E-Commerce agency also aware of this problem and make a specific e-commerce development program for cybersecurity.
People see a developer and tech guy as an awesome profession. The demand for this job is also high. So does the education for it. Google, one of the biggest company on Earth also use this chance to make education and gain more talented individuals to their office. Even in my country, Indonesia, they make educational event and school for people who eager to learn about code. They even make particular major for cybersecurity. So, I can say that it’s vital if you don’t make it as your first priority.
We walked on e-commerce industry and we manage to create an environment where people sell and buy products. We use a credit card or bank transfer as our main methods for the cash flow. Yet not every customer knows about the security in the e-commerce transaction. So I think there are two options that you need to take. Not only for them but for you as well.
According to Wikipedia, phishing is the attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and money), often for malicious reasons, by disguising as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. There is a high chance that one of your customers is doesn’t aware of phishing and they will get cheated. And the e-commerce development process would be useless.
Phishing is typically carried out by email spoofing or instant messaging, and it often directs users to enter personal information at a fake website, the look and feel of which are identical to the legitimate one and the only difference is the URL of the website in concern. Communications purporting to be from social websites, auction sites, banks, online payment processors or IT administrators are often used to lure victims. Phishing emails may contain links to websites that distribute malware. (Wikipedia)
Hence, you need to know how to educate them in a persuasive way. They need to know how phishing works and how hackers the ‘trustworthy’ entity get your customer’s trust and direct them to give sensitive information or even cash.
SSL Certificate is a method to encrypt your transfer process from one computer to another. Since you have to transfer for a computer to computer, hackers, and people who want your data (or your customer’s data) like a credit card, personal identity, or other sensitive data need to be encrypted.
Well, to make it simpler, the program from that SSL Certificate will scramble your data to and put it in an envelope. Then you send it to your friend. To make it there, the envelope will take a journey until it’s arrived. Mostly, the hacker will try to steal your data when you send this envelope. But because your encrypted data, the only person who can see the encrypted data is you and your friend.
But of course, there is a tiny chance that your data will get decrypted by the hackers. Yet it takes a long time to do that. So, I think this is the safest method to travel your data from one computer to another.
The weakness of this security method is the cost. It’s expensive. To make a good security system, get a green padlock beside your URL and get a single ‘s’ for ‘https’, you have to spend a lot of money. You just don’t have to pay for you e-commerce development. You need to pay more room on the server as well. The encryption process takes a lot of space to do. Especially if there is a lot of transaction on the server. If you don’t have an additional room, your customers will see ‘system down’ message on their browser.
But you don’t have to worry about the budget. There is an affordable e-commerce development in the security system. And LimeCommerce makes a program for this development. Not every company has a huge cash in their pocket. Yet they still need a good security system, add a green lock icon beside the URL address and use an ‘s’ to gain customer’s trust. Also, a proven secure website will elevate your page rank and lift you up to the top of the search engine.
Since the cost of your security system is way too high if you use an ordinary certificate, you can try to contact us and get an affordable e-commerce development for your security system. And remember, once your customers know that your store is not safe for them to make any transaction, they will tell to anyone and it could be the end of your e-commerce site.
There are two approaches to get your SSL Certificate. The first one is purchasing SSL certificate as usual. The second one is using Letsencrypt SSL for your site. The second option is still popular, secure, and the most important thing is: it’s free. If you don’t trust me, you can check the site. There are a lot of companies that support Letsencrypt to make a secure connection and security system. Limecommerce provides this method and you can choose one of those methods whenever you want.
If you still have some questions about these two approaches, just let us know and we will give you as precise as we can. Ask us anytime, anywhere. It’s our job to make a good e-commerce development.
The process for e-commerce development includes technical audit for speed and security of your e-commerce store. Just like other certificates, SSL Certificate also has an expired date. So you need to make an annual audit of your security system. This e-commerce system is always needed because sometimes people will forget about the date. You can mark your calendar for it. Or just check the site periodically.
Long story short, we know that a good security system is the first priority in e-commerce development. If you want to gain trust and elevate your page rank, get your SSL certificate. You can choose two approaches and it’s all based on your budget and yourself. So pick one that will fit the most to your site.
