Website security is very important in many ways, and especially for ecommerce sites where customer data is processed and payment details are captured. The reasons why security is important include:
- Ensuring availability of your website with full functionality – i.e. that customers can visit and transact on your site
- Building customer trust – no brand wants to have to write to their customers and tell them that their data has been accessed by hackers
- Legal compliance – it is the responsibility of website owners to ensure that their websites are storing and processing data securely in compliance with GDPR and similar legislation
Excellent security is a must-have requirement for ecommerce and Qala has a sophisticated and comprehensive posture.
