Lockdown, COVID-19, pandemic are words excessively used and seen these days. Let’s take a break for just a moment and talk about some old problems that have not disappeared. How does it sound to you an eCommerce security checklist for website owners?
As websites’ security is one of our most important concerns, we invested great energy in some detailed articles about cybersecurity advices which should be considered by the website owners as well as the most common cybersecurity attacks that they have to deal with.
The other day we discovered a guide which was just released by University of North Dakota and we think it is a great addition to our already published information and may help you to keep your website safe.
This guide provide useful insights about:
1. How to ensure back-end security
Common web security mistakes, such as broken authentication and security misconfiguration help a cybercriminal to infiltrate and corrupt a company’s digital information and data.
E-commerce organizations should work to establish strong authentication and authorization protocols for its staff and systems.
2. Communicating to consumers that their data is protected
We would say that communicating to your customers your security initiatives and that their data is protected is as least as important as the implemented security measures. Building your brand and your customers’ trust will help you boost your sales and make a difference on the market.
This is the reason we created Invictus SECURED, a product which supports online businesses in their efforts to assure their clients that their online experience and security are important concerns for which they constantly direct energy and resources.

Therefore, a strong prevention may be more effective than any attempt to anticipate some type of cyber attacks. A list with the most common cybersecurity attacks may help you to take the proper security measures for your website.
