Data Safety Instructions For Website Owners

The old adage “prevention is better than cure” certainly applies to data privacy. A small amount of harmful code that is uploaded to your website can cause enormous damage, ranging from a pop-up window opening to stolen sessions or passwords and even a complete system breach. As part of your security measures for data you should specify how often and when your system scans for this kind of malicious code and also what security measures are in place to limit the risk.

Update your software or scripts that you employ on your website regularly. Hackers aggressively target security flaws in popular web software and the absence of timely updates exposes your system to attack. Additionally, you must restrict access to your network or database to the least number of people required to perform their job.

Develop a response strategy to deal with potential breaches, and designate an employee to oversee the process. Depending on the nature of your business, you might need to notify consumers, law enforcement agencies, customers, and credit bureaus. This is an important process that should be planned in advance.

Create strong password requirements for consumer accounts. Also, make sure you have a good method of 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 storing sensitive data about users and when you have to reduce the risk of storing it, consider encryption or deletion of the information after a specified time.
