Secure and trustworthy websites: indicators and protective measures
How to Find a Safe Site
A legitimate trust seal and a URL that starts with “https” are indicators that the website is secure. These measures prevent others from eavesdropping or intercepting your communication with the site’s server.
As e-commerce sales spike this holiday season, hackers are scouring the internet for unprotected websites. They can steal usernames and passwords from unprotected sites, and then use those logins to access other websites. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to protect yourself against cybercriminals.
Security measures are vital for all businesses, regardless of size or reputation. Without these measures, your customers can be exposed to harmful links and malware, which will damage their trust in your brand. Additionally, if Google sees that you have numerous security threats and spam on your website, it will lower your search engine results.
