Cruise Amour Leads the Way in Website SecurityBy Cruise Amour, PRNE
Tuesday, May 17, 2011
PORTSMOUTH, England, May 18, 2011 - Cruise Amour has shown its commitment to customer security by being the
first UK agency to adopt site-wide security measures.
Barely a week goes by without a report that another "big-name" company
has had its on-line security compromised or has failed to properly protect
its customer's data. Although the travel industry has by chance managed to
avoid such pitfalls, Cruise Amour has taken the pro-active step of
introducing additional industry leading security measures.
Managing director Tim Hurrell, commented on the new security measures:
"Let's be clear, our customers are everything to us and it's important we
look after them. Not just by delivering an exceptional holiday experience,
but by protecting their data and ensuring that when they interact with our
website and book on-line, that their data is kept safe. We take our
responsibility to our customers very seriously".
Cruise Amour has protected their website with 256bit SSL encryption and
an extended validation security certificate. Not only do these measures
ensure that all data send between its website and a customer's computer is
fully protected but, should the security of a customer's data be compromised
a 3rd party financial warrantee is in place.
Customers who visit the Cruise Amour website (that now starts with https
instead of http) will be presented with the "green bar of trust" as featured
on the websites of most on-line banking systems and large retailers such as
e-Bay and PayPal. This should help customers feel secure about entering their
personal and payment details into the site.
Hurrell continued: "Customers expect the retailer to take the lead when
it comes to things like card payment security. In our opinion, many of our
competitors don't take their responsibilities seriously enough, often failing
to address the issues - especially on-line. We wanted our customer's to be
confident that whatever information they share with us whilst using our
website is being kept safe and that they are fully protected. Our security
covers everything from e-mail newsletter sign-up to call back requests to
