There are forms on the mortgage website to capture potential customer’s details. First and foremost is to collect only what is needed to contact the potential client. Social Security Number is considered to be the most sensitive data, and in most cases companies don’t want to collect this data through the online forms. So we can make sure there is no field on the forms to collect a user’s SSN.
Secondly the website/business owner can purchase a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for his domain, which will ensure that every bit of transmission between the visitor’s browser and the hosting server will be encrypted and over a secure channel. The cost for a SSL certificate for a mortgage website can be anywhere between $ to $$$ depending upon how secure you want your communication to be.
As an additional level of security, we can make the code amendments so no submitted data will be stored in the database on the hosting servers. Submitted details will go to an email address of mortgage website owner’s choice over a secure channel. This essentially means, if data related to the consumer is NOT on the server, there won’t be any chance of theft.
Normally these are the features we implement where organisations are more concerned about the security of data and secured transmission over the internet.
