The old adage “prevention is better than cure” certainly applies to data privacy. A tiny piece of malicious code uploaded on your website could cause massive damage. From the pop-up, to a system compromise, or even the theft of a password or session. As part of your security measures for data it is important to define the frequency and manner in which your system scans for this type of malicious code, and what safeguards are in place minimize the risk.
Update your software or scripts that you utilize on your website regularly. Hackers are targeting security vulnerabilities in the popular web software and a lack timely updates leaves your system vulnerable. You should also limit database or network accessibility to the minimum amount of people required to perform their job.
Develop a response strategy to address any potential breaches and assign a staff member to manage the process. Depending on your business it is possible to notify customers, law enforcement and credit bureaus. This is a serious matter that must be planned in advance.
Implement strong password requirements for consumer accounts. Make sure you have a method for storing passwords, like requiring the use of lower and uppercase numerals, letters and special characters or using salt and hash functions that are slow. Avoid the unnecessary storage of confidential information about users, and if you do, minimize the risk by either encrypting the data or deleting it after a period of time.
