How to Achieve BBB Accreditation for Electronic Commerce Businesses
In this review of third-party assurance providers I chose BBBonline, INC. The reason I chose them was because of the Better Business Bureau backing. In order for a business to get a Better Business Bureau seal on their website they must first have an accreditation. This is by no means an easy task to accomplish. There are several guidelines a business has to meet before being approved. This is one of the two security features I chose. The second security feature I will discuss is safeguarding privacy.
How to Achieve Better Business Bureau Accreditation
Since there are several things a business must do to achieve Accreditation Standards, I will only be discussing a couple of them here in this paper. The first one is a business must have been operational the 12 months prior to receiving accreditation. This is probably because it would have given them time to handle business transactions online. Also, a business must be free from any governmental actions against them that would prove them to be unethical.
How to Safeguard Your Privacy
Last, I would like to discuss safeguarding privacy. Before a business is accepted and approved of an accreditation they have to transfer all transactions online securely that involve social security numbers, credit card numbers, and all private information. What is best about this required process? A business has to prove that they are transmitting this information before getting approved an accreditation.
In conclusion, this is only a couple of the things a business has to go through to receive accreditation. So if you are on a website that has a BBB approval then you are on a safe and secure website under most circumstances.
