Security and GDPR settings
In today's digital world, security is of utmost importance. With the increasing threat of cyber attacks, protecting sensitive data and ensuring the privacy of users has become a top priority for idloom. In addition to all security measures in place, we offer you the opportunity to tighten even more your account security settings in Account > Security > Security & GDPR
MFA, or Multi-Factor Authentication, provides an additional layer of security beyond a password, making it more difficult for attackers to gain access to sensitive information. MFA can prevent unauthorized access even if the password is compromised, as the user is required to provide additional authentication factors such as a code sent to their mobile device or a biometric scan. The advantages of MFA include increased security, reduced risk of data breaches, and improved compliance with industry regulations.
By enforcing this security rule, all your current and future users will be prompted to configure a one-time password generator, which could be Google Authenticator on your mobile phone or your favorite password management tool.
Protect your registration process
It's important to prevent automated bots from making fake registrations and potentially carrying out malicious activities. idloom.events already use a full set of session cookies and security headers to prevent such risks.
But since one can never be too careful, we offer you the capability of configuring additional security layers such as Captcha and registration capping.
CAPTCHA is a challenge-response test that can distinguish between humans and bots by requiring users to complete a task, such as identifying objects in an image or analyzing your interaction with form components. By using CAPTCHA, website owners can ensure that only real users are able to register for an account, reducing the risk of spam, fraud, and other types of abuse. Should you decide to activate that feature, you can choose between Google reCAPTCHA or Friendly Captcha for GDPR compliance.
Prevent spam and abuse on your registration forms you can also define the maximum number of registrations per hour you expect and accept. If you expect 3,000 registrations on a 3-month period, it’s probably safe to set your capping to a maximum of 100 registrations an hour. And don’t worry, should you have a very busy period, just like during a marketing campaign, you will be notified if you reach 80% of the limit, and if you reach it, visitors will be informed that the website is unexpectedly busy and that the page will automatically let them in a few minutes.
Security headers are lines of code that provide instructions to web browsers on how to handle a web page. They help prevent common web vulnerabilities and protect against malicious activities, making them essential for SaaS software security. Security headers mitigate risks associated with web applications, including cross-site scripting attacks, cross-site request forgery attacks, and clickjacking attacks. Implementing proper security headers is critical for ensuring the security and privacy of data and maintaining users' trust.
Most common and important security headers are already set in idloom.events and your browser security, but we offer you the opportunity to go one step further and set your own security rules. Just keep in mind that adding or modifying security headers of your events websites may have an important impact on their behavior. Make sure you have selected the correct security header values.
In conclusion, idloom is committed to providing top-notch security measures to protect the sensitive data of its users. By offering multi-factor authentication, CAPTCHA, registration capping, and security headers, we provide an additional layer of protection to ensure the privacy and security of your data. With the increasing threat of cyber attacks, it's more important than ever to take proactive steps to prevent unauthorized access and protect your accounts. By implementing these security features, you can rest assured that your data is in safe hands with idloom.
