July 11, 2008, Newsletter Issue #154: Secure SSL and shopping cart security

Tip of the Week

Smart shoppers know they need to protect their credit cards and PIN codes. They don't leave their credit cards lying around for anyone to see. How can you be sure that your online shopping experience is safe? Make sure that basic shopping cart security is in place before you enter your credit card information online. A secure ecommerce shopping cart will use an SSL secure server to collect your information. First, you will probably see that the web site address contains https rather than just http before the name. Also, depending on which browser you use, you should see some visual indication that you are on a secure SSL server. In Explorer, for instance, you see a lock down in the lower right corner of the browser.
