Having an SSL Certificate is one of the best ways to do this.

What is an SSL Certificate?
Have you ever noticed that little padlock next to the web-address bar on your internet browser? Some sites have them, and some don’t. Those that do, have been marked as secure for browsing using an SSL certificate.
You can also tell whether a site is secured through SSL certification using the website address; if it starts with ‘https://’ instead of ‘http://’ it’s secure.
When your website has this certification, you essentially let users know that your website is safe. It also puts their minds at ease, since they can see that the website has been registered to your brand, and can therefore be trusted.
What Does Google Think about SSL Certificates?
SSL Certification isn’t just a way to improve the user-experience of your website, it is also a great way to boost your SEO.
Google loves websites that have SSL certification, they want their users to get the best possible experience on the web.
This means that their search-engine algorithms favour websites that are secure, which means that they will stand a better chance at ranking higher in search results.
