Protection of Personal Information is Important in a Digital World: Are Payment Transactions Secure?

Posted on Feb 10, 2020 by Lucas Brasil

There was a time when locking our doors was enough security. In a digital world, your personal information is not always safe online, even behind “closed doors.” What can we do to protect online payment transactions?

Data Privacy

Let’s say you meet someone for the first time. You would be happy to share your name with that person, but you won’t want to share your credit card numbers or bank account information.

When you purchase something from a company online, you are sharing very personal financial information with a stranger. That’s why data privacy is becoming critical in our digital world.

Payment Transactions May Be Hacked

Every time you make an online purchase, you’ve shared personal information. One company alone can have personal information of millions of customers. When hackers access that information, it’s called a “breach.” A single breach can cost customers billions of dollars and completely ruin the credibility of the company.

If you purchased something from one of these companies in 2018-2019, your personal data could have been compromised:

  • Adidas
  • Bucca di Beppo
  • Checkers/Rally’s
  • Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen
  • Chicken Guy!
  • Earl of Sandwich
  • HyVee
  • Jared The Galleria of Jewelry
  • Kay Jewelers
  • Lord & Taylor
  • Macy’s
  • Marriott Hotels
  • Mixology 101
  • Panera Bread
  • Planet Hollywood
  • Poshmark
  • Sak’s Fifth Avenue
  • Tequila Taqueria
  • Under Armour MyFitnessPal App

5 Tips to Protect Your Personal Information

Just as you brush your teeth to prevent cavities or change your car’s oil to keep the engine running smoothly, you need to protect your personal information.

  1. Don’t provide your social security number to any person that contacts you. Most companies will ask for only the last 4 digits to verify your identity. And remember: social security numbers and cards never expire and the Social Security Administration will never ask you to verify your identity by giving them your number.
  2. Secure your home wifi network and password-protect.
  3. Shred documents that have personal information (bank/credit card statements, purchase receipts, etc.)
  4. Use a locking mailbox at home or get a post office box.
  5. Use strong passwords and change them often.
