WEBTRUST SERVICES: Security

With WebTrust, an enterprises can ensure that access to its electronic commerce system and data is restricted only to authorized individuals in conformity with its disclosed security policies.

The WebTrust Program's Security standards provide a comprehensive solution for e-businesses by independently verifying a web site's compliance with online security best practices.

In the course of communicating and transacting business over the Internet, consumers and business must send and receive information about the other party. Parties who engage in electronic commerce are anxious to ensure that the information they provide is available only to those individuals who need access to complete the transaction.

Information that is provided to another party is susceptible to unauthorized access during transmission over the Internet and while it is stored on the other party's computer systems.

For example, personal information and credit card numbers may be intercepted by an unauthorized party while they are being transmitted over the Internet. However, if the information is encrypted, it is difficult for the unauthorized party to decipher it. If the computer system where the data is stored is not protected by a firewall and a rigorous security system, the information may be accessed by unauthorized personnel.

The WebTrust Security Principle sets out an overall objective for the security of data transmitted over the Internet and stored on an e-commerce system.

The WebTrust Security Principle:

The entity discloses its key security practices, complies with such security practices, and maintains effective controls to provide reasonable assurance that access to the electronic commerce system and data is restricted only to authorized individuals in conformity with its disclosed security practices.
