WYSIWYG With Online Security Companies
Everyone knows that labeling a transaction 'secure' over the Internet is a sure thing, right?
Wrong! Not all online security companies are alike, and as financial professionals, it is up to us to advise our clients on the why and how of online security if the client conducts any kind of e-Commerce transaction.
Do the research and present the client with a list of possible companies. In addition to Enonymous, there is TRUSTe (and this is the oldest organization, formed in 1997), the one run by the Better Business Bureau called BBBOnline and Secure Assure. Users should remain aware whether a security company has a policy not to sell or trade information on its customers. Secure Assure, for example, has such a policy in place.
