Security

Internet es una gran tentación para poder realizar compras de forma rápida y económica pero… ¿te gusta dar los datos personales? ¿te gusta dar los datos de tus tarjetas de crédito?, etc., sigue estos pequeños consejos y te sentirás más seguro “navegando” por Internet.

Best of all is to do business transactions on sites that are known and trusted, for this to happen must take the following precautions:

  1. Secure website should have SSL (Secure Socket Layer) for when you must send sensitive data over the Internet, this technology allows information sent from the user's machine trip encrypted (encoded in such a way that can only be decrypted by a secret and inviolable key) to the destination site and vice versa. With different web browsers you can see at the address bar (where they usually put the web address you want to visit) and you should see something like this: https:// www.kapptus.com (where the letter "s" from https means the use of this technology).

  2. Web site must have a digital certificate: This will allow the site that you are visiting is real and it is who claims to be, not a copy of trust site. In this digital certificate you can see the full name of the owner of the business, e-mail, public key, duration and certification authority (this you can see by clicking on the padlock that appears in the address bar). Enterprises that issue digital certificates verify that the domain name and company data correspond to the owner. If you follow those advices will be harder to fall in attacks called Man in the Middle and / or Man in the Browser, in addition Kapptus always think about your safety, therefore, we have implemented the most effective security controls as dual channel authentication provided by Cautelam.
  1. The first rule, protect your identity. It is important to keep our personal information and not to do easy that third parties access to it.

  2. Never give personal information by email; even though email may see from our bank, etc., (offenders may develop false correspondence stealing logos from trusted institutions)

  3. If you make Internet shopping must ensure that the site is legal and trusted, possessing verified SSL technology, digital signature and verification of user identity.

  4. Not provide detailed or excessive personal information to social networking as these sites are publicly available and we can´t know who reads and copies the data we provide. Some criminals are "as smart" that can get access to information that we designate as "private".

  5. Do not use the same password for all websites or applications. If you find it hard to remember many passwords, try using variants of the same secret code (reverse letters, add a number, use uppercase, etc.).

  6. Use effective passwords. The best are the alphanumeric (a combination of numbers and letters) alternatively use case sensitive. They should not contain obvious personal information such as name, date of birth, phone number, names of family, etc., in short, seeks a password that you do not link directly.

  7. Another crucial consideration to prevent fraud is directly related to the safety of your equipment (PC, Smartphone, etc.) and the security that has it. Remember to have the latest patches and / or updates to the operating system (Windows, Linux, etc.) antivirus, firewall, antispyware, anti-phishing, latest web browsers, etc. In the case of PC users do not use administrator privileges, used for daily operations a user with the least possible privileges.

  8. We must avoid access to the trusted sites through hyperlinks found on other pages. Remember that the address should be written complete, specifying the domain, since there are "mirror" sites that mimic legitimate with a small change in web direction.

  9. Never send your credit card number via e-mail.

  10. Nunca accedas a direcciones de Internet (URL´s) de lugares donde te pidan datos sensibles desde un link incluido en un e-mail o similar. Teclea siempre tú mismo la dirección Web en el navegador.
