Data Privacy Policies
By Sean Needham
Siteimprove's Data Privacy module includes a collection of pre-configured policies focusing specifically on your website's security and data privacy. The pre-configured policies include the following:
Find publicly exposed credit card numbers
This policy highlights possible instances of credit card numbers that are openly visible on your site. This policy looks for Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Diners Club format credit card numbers.
This policy analyses links found on websites and checks them against a database of domains that are listed as being unsafe, i.e. they may contain malicious code, malware, virus, or unwanted software. Pages containing links to unsafe domains are flagged using this policy.
HTTP mixed content on HTTPS pages
This policy checks if pages on a secure HTTPS domain link to an HTTP domain. Pages containing HTTPS and HTTP mixed content should be avoided to ensure that information is sent over a secure channel.
As well as these preconfigured policies Data Privacy customers can use the following three rules when creating policies:
- Email address
- Content match
- Number of personal IDs
Note: The Siteimprove Data Privacy module can be added to an existing subscription, or bought as a stand-alone product. Get in touch with us if you want to learn more about the Siteimprove Data Privacy module.
