When it comes to online shopping, businesses are responsible for more than just product quality, timely shipping, and excellent customer service. As more and more consumers are transitioning to ecommerce, businesses must incorporate fraud prevention technology platforms and understand data security best practices.

Here are 15 steps you can take to secure your ecommerce site:

Encrypt all communications with the web browser by updating your site to HTTPS.
Secure transactions through the use of two-factor authentication.
Prevent denial-of-service (DoS) attacks with firewalls and application gateways.
Choose a hosting service plan with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protection.
Ensure the hosting plan works with the newest ecommerce and CMS software.
Use services with security software to prevent malware attacks.
Keep your plugins, CMS, and software updated.
Create new administrative passwords every six months.
Schedule data backups to occur automatically.
Audit your site for vulnerabilities regularly.
Advise employees to avoid suspicious activity on social media.
Teach everyone in the company how to recognize phishing scams.
Use secure online payment methods.
Generate a user-friendly privacy policy.
Delete all unnecessary customer data as soon as possible.

It’s true that online shopping is increasing (though still far behind shopping in physical stores), however, consumers are growing weary of how businesses handle their sensitive information. One study shows that 67% of online respondents fear their private data will be released in a data breach in the near future.

In order for ecommerce businesses — from entrepreneurs to corporate giants — to be successful, they absolutely must know how to manage data privacy. You might have heard of some companies that learned the hard way: Target, Equifax, and Under Armour, to name a few.

See how these businesses recovered and learn how to protect yourself and your customers from data breaches and malware attacks.
