Website Security – Is Your SSL Certificate Up to Date
Repost from my November 2007 eNewsletter:
“Do you have an e-commerce website? Do you collect any financially or privacy sensitive data? If so, make sure your SSL certificate is up-to-date and working. An SSL certificate encrypts the data sent from your website, such as online orders a customer has placed. Without encryption from an SSL certificate, this data can be more easily hi-jacked by a hacker and pose serious liability to your company. Typically, your SSL certificate will come up for renewal on a yearly basis. Common providers of SSL certificates are Verisign, Thawte, Entrust and GoDaddy.
Not sure if you have, or need, an SSL certificate for your website? If so, call me ASAP at 1-800-709-3240 or (352) 732-7700.”
