There is a clear need for security controls that protect customer data, particularly the need for end-to-end encryption of communications over the Internet. SSL technologies form the foundation of five key practices that implement security controls and provide evidence that such controls are active.
The five recommended practices are:
- Preventing third-parties from viewing communications
- Mitigating the risk of customer data exposure
- Providing SSL on all Web-accessible servers
- Demonstrating validated identity
- Using SSL certificates from a security leader
Together, these five practices demonstrate a commitment to protect your customers’ data and help to establish the trust necessary for online communications and commerce.
