follow-up to secure data encryption / identity theft question
Posted on 2006-06-02
If my e-commerce site is hosted on Crystal Tech, or another service, in a shared environment, where or how can data be stolen and make us liable if we are using SSL from our website to the host to transmit personal information. How can this e-commerce site be liable if SSL is used? Some of this personal data will be transmitted from CT to our server via email.
I am only asking so I can give the client answers--I've already gotten the approval to use Authorize.net--still trying to figure out the 'pros' and 'cons' of using Authorize.net, if our website is not even on an in-house server?
