Online properties

There are some of these access details that can create huge loss of valuable properties on web. We are listing some of the properties:

  • Domain name: With the recent purchase of xxxx.com (imaginary domain), we have got the access of xxxx.com registrar (Godaddy).Now we don't want to share it with all the company. We want to share it only with the top management and security layer. After we give the username and password, the password should be changed and confirmed.
    • The most critical part of web, if this access is lost, we will lose the website  xxxx.com and all other websites.  
    • If this falls to a wrong person: He can just change the name server and we will lose the complete access to it. Same is applicable for other domains. There are no proper laws and addressing bodies for it.
    • Who all should have the access to domain registrars: Only the top layer (may be 1 or 2 people & documentation to be kept in top layer documents only).
    • What work falls under this access details: Only changing of name server and contact details.
    • Frequency of change: Generally 1 to 2 times in a year. Thus management by the top layer is easy

 

  • FTP access to the web server where the files are:
    • Not very critical.
    •  If this falls to a wrong person: If this falls to a wrong person, he can add unwanted files and do some bad promotion for the brand. Also the whole files and content can be deleted as well. The agency working on web should take up the complete responsibility for it. I have written an article on it at http://www.ivizsecurity.com/blog/penetration- testing/how-search-engine-security-testing-can-improve-website- ranking/
    • Who all should have the access: Web marketing agency,development agency, people who work on the website from the company. There should be an audit every 3 months and random automated audits to ensure full safety.
    • What work falls under this access details: All file changes etc.
    • Frequency of change: Many times in a month and thus giving access to people involved is important.
    • Urgent steps to be taken: It should have a regular backup.
       
  • Facebook pages/ Twitter/ YouTube Videos:
    • It is critical these days.
    • If this falls to a wrong person: They will write something bad for the brand on their page representing the brand, which can create problems for the brand.
    • Who all should have the access: Web marketing agency, team involved in marketing from the company (Trusted), and 1 or 2 people from top layer (Password to changed regularly and informed to the team members involved, avoid using personal accounts)
    • What work falls under this access details: All status updates etc.
    • Frequency of change: Many times in a month and thus giving access to people involved is important.
    • Urgent steps to be taken: No personal accounts should be admin.
