  • Are you secure when exposing your Odoo ERP on E-commerce and the website?

  • The number of Cyber-attacks has skyrocketed in recent years. Even SMEs are not spared. 43% of breaches involved small businesses! Let’s give this fact a thought.

We interviewed our security expert Thomas SALIOU to give our readers a few basic tips on how to secure their Odoo systems.

How can it be ascertained that modules developed for Odoo are secure, especially the Website and E-Commerce?

On-premise Software Deployment

The best way to secure your system is using your own solution, database, and computers that are not exposed on the internet in any way, rather than using a remote facility such as a server farm or cloud.

Security certificates

No one knows to keep secrets better than HTTPS!

  • Use security certificates for secure credit card transactions, data transfer, and logins.

  • By enforcing HTTPS all the data remains private and the user’s information is secure.
  • Don’t forget to check if the SSL Certificates are valid!

Avoid collecting credit card information

  • The best way of keeping a secret is to pretend there isn’t one! When not necessary avoid collecting or saving user’s data.

  • When necessary, ensure that the information of the customer is well-secured.

  • Use only approved payment modules, verified by your payment service provider (PSP).

                      PCI DSS compliance

                      When processing online payments select a payment integrator that ciphers and registers credit card information for you. This is required by most European member country laws anyways, and is the best practice in favour of e-commerce consumers.

                      Update and patch extensions and applications running on your website

                      Prevention is better than cure! Prevent and control any potential risk of exposing the payment data. Applications that remain unpatched are Achilles’ heel of your security system. Hackers use web crawlers to target them adroitly.

                      Security tests

                      Security tests on your E-commerce website should be your weekly routine. Else, they become vulnerabilities and hackers can smell vulnerabilities, like bears can smell food.
