In e-commerce, I see much talk of people encrypting credit cards but not a lot of discussion on encrypting customer details including name, address, zip codes etc
With the amount of sites being hacked and identify theft I would have thought that this was as important. After all, credit cards are easily cancelled and replaced but identity cannot.
Many people use a payment gateway service to handle the “safe” keeping of customer credit card details but then forget to bother about securely storing customer details on their own website.
Therefore, my question is what methods do you use/suggest to others for handling security of customer details?
Forgive me for posting this here, as I could not find a dedicated security thread on this forum.
