Abigail is an antiques dealer. She’s created a website to sell her products, and also publishes regular blog posts to raise awareness and keep customers interested. Which of the following would help make Abigail’s business and customers safer online?

(A) Moving to HTTPS

(B) Sending regular security updates to customers’ spam boxes

(C) Using a reliable email provider

(D) Ensuring her website has a high SEO ranking

Explanation

The first thing she should do is get her site secured to the HTTPS protocol by downloading and installing an SSL certificate on her website. A site with HTTPS is trusted by Google and other search engines and this also creates a sense of trust in the customer.

She should also use a reliable email provider that uses protocols to ensure that every email sent using that provider is encrypted. This makes sure that hackers or other malicious software cannot edit or read the contents of the email.
