Christian Said

"Just like any ecommerce application that collects credit card information, it is important to ensure that PCI-DSS principles are being met and that tokenized payment methods are being used.
Some basic guidelines to ensure security are:

  • make sure that server software is up to date

  • limit access to the code base to a minimum

  • limit the modules used to a minimum (each new module can be a potential new attack vector)

  • keep your modules up to date

  • use secure protocols wherever and whenever possible
