Web Site Procedures

Most large Web sites encourage repeat spending by storing credit card information, user profiles—including address and billing information—on their servers. However, most e-commerce sites do not encrypt this information. TRUSTe and BBBOnLine do not require "data safety" procedures, and audits of Web site logs for packet intrusion to back-end servers are not required. As e-commerce grows, standards organizations will likely assemble best practices of sites to create a formal set of procedures, much as local ordinances require businesses to meet standards for health and safety.
