Secure Online Payment Platform

If you choose an online payment platform it is important to check their security & privacy policies, their first priority should be to protect their users from credit card fraud and data breaches.

Do not choose to fast an online payment platform, ask them first what they did to make sure their online payment platform is secure.

What is a Secure Online Payment Platform?

There is no easy or accurate answer to tell you what a secure online payment platform is, the web continues evolving and with many new payment solutions, it is important to choose an online payment platform that follows these new trends, to stay up-to-date with the newest technologies in security and online payments.

At least an online payment platform should have these features to be secure:

1. PCI DSS compliant

With PCI DSS no sensitive card data is stored, also important to use a PCI Level 1 Service Provider like Stripe or PayPal.

2. Fully GDPR compliant

In April 2016 the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) was passed by the European Parlament, every company that does business in the EU (like an online payment platform) is required to be GDPR compliant, which means they always give insights into customers’ data, and the right to be forgotten.

3. CSRF Protection

CSRF stands for Cross-site request forgery and is a security vulnerability that allows attackers to gain full access to someone else user account, luckily there is a simple solution when web applications use a CSRF token they can prevent CSRF attacks, and keep their users secure.

4. 3D Secure Payments

For extra fraud protection, it is recommended that your online payment platform uses 3D Secure authentication method to verify a customer’s identity before an online card purchase, this will make online payments more secure, and will reduces credit card fraud.

5. Secure Data Encryption

Most important is that an online payment platform data is always encrypted with the industry-standard AES (alias Rijndael) encryption algorithm using a 256-bit key, to protect payment data.

6. Reliable Infrastructure

Last but not least, it is not important that the online payment platform is secure but also that the cloud infrastructure that is used, good cloud providers are DigitalOcean, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon AWS.
