When ecommerce began it's journey security was never really thought about and the ability to interupt data transfer to acquire credit card information was no more dificult than implementing a simple phone tap. It wasn't long then before encryption was needed to stop this from happening and SSL (secure sockets layer) was introduced.

Here at Sitebox Ltd we have invested in a GlobalSign Security Certificate who are the market leaders in SSL encryption. Whenever you are entering details that you consider to be vunerable you must check the following:

  1. Check to see if there is "https://" at the beginning of the website address. (the s is the secure part)

  2. Look for the green bar or green writing within your browser's address area. This is displayed in different ways depending upon the browser but there is usually some form of padlock that goes with it as well.

  3. You can also check the certificate in more detail by clicking on the padlock or green bar and reading the information within that.
